Contemporary realism paintings by Sharon J. Harms


Thank you for stopping by to look at my work.

I'm a contemporary artist working in the realism and photorealism genres. I primarily paint still lifes of everyday objects, which I combine in a way that allows for visual narratives to emerge. I explore thoughts, ideas and beliefs through man-made objects and the symbolism they represent. My work is heavily influenced by my long career in advertising as a graphic designer and art director, where every detail is labored over and crafted in a highly controlled way. As an artist, I use that experience to create highly detailed paintings that invite the viewer to find personal connections to the narratives.
