Sharon Drew has been invited to exhibit her abstract paintings at William Road Gallery. By recreating the sensation of light, colour, rhythm and movement Drew finds in landscape, her work brings a visceral element to the gallery setting.

This new series includes large-scale paintings and captures the essence of visits to urban and coastal shorelines. Building up opaque and translucent layers with repetitive and rhythmic gestures she emulates the constant fluctuations of nature.

In contrast to the measured and calculated methods of the architects whose practice houses the gallery, Drew's works result from a process of only just controlling the paint, of letting the material lead the way. The desire is to be spontaneous and completely in the moment, and to share this sense of immersion with the viewer.
