Anderson O'Brien Fine Art presents Sharon Booma
"The Writing's on the Wall"
Exhibition Ends Sunday, May 22
Exhibiting work since 1986, her complex paintings have been in several museum invitationals and earned special recognition by leading art journals nationwide. Abstract artist, Sharon Booma, has exhibited her unique and widely acclaimed art throughout North America and Europe.
Sharon Booma lived in Omaha from 1995-2000 and enjoyed getting to know the people, the community and its positive and generous outlook. Attracted to grittier parts of the city, Booma was happy to find an old hardware store in downtown Omaha full of old nuts and bolts and all sorts of treasures that ultimately ended up being part of her art. he “Writing’s on the Wall” was influenced by the development of new ideas on her canvases. The numbers featured in the paintings are a universal language and also a definitive statement, which grounds the more elusive areas of the canvas. Booma explains, “When I start a piece, I may have an intention of where I think the work should go, but often arrive somewhere I hadn’t imagined.”
The beauty of Christy glass is that no two are exactly the same. Each piece has been carefully shaped by the hands of the artist creating a uniqueness that cannot be imitated by any machine. Christy’s work is a continuation of the 3000-year-old tradition of glassmaking and the American art glass movement.
Christy Glass is available in an array of colors and come in three sizes, Larges are 14" x 10", Medium 5" x 7", and Baby 3" x 5". These bowls are the pefect addition to any space and make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season!
Christy learned to blow glass at Urban Glass in New York City. She became fascinated with the ancient process of glassmaking and the challenge of forming beautiful handmade objects out of this molten material. Soon she began working and designing her own artwork made of glass.
