Sharon Pierce Mc Cullough


Sharon Pierce McCullough is an American visual artist engaged in a multidisciplinary practice that includes painting, drawing and sculpture. Her love of drawing horses dates back to her childhood when her sister started riding horses.

Sharon's art practice attests to her experimental spirit as she explores colors, shapes and textures in many of her ongoing series of paintings and sculptures. Never static, her oeuvre demonstrates an artist constantly experimenting with possibility. Works vary to include geometric, minimal and figurative abstracts, with a concentration on Horses.

“I am in love with the form of the horse. I prefer to capture the essence of the horse rather than fine details. And while my horse paintings appear minimal, I have chosen to use intentional, textured brushstrokes to enhance the hide of the horse.”

Working in an intuitive, yet intentional, manner, Sharon sometimes works from quick sketches but mostly not. "While I am inspired by painters such as Miro and Klee, I constantly strive to draw from my own inner creativity."
Color is one of the most defining elements of her work. Taking cues from early Minimalism and Color Field painters, Sharon hones her multicolored palette on a continual basis. "The choice of each color in a painting is often a long process for me. It can be a defining choice that determines whether a work is good or great."

In the studio, Sharon toggles back and forth between paintings and sculpture. The paintings are created on canvas using acrylics, and enamels. Her sculptures make use of divergent materials such as plaster, found objects and cement. She works in series, with Horses and Geometric Abstracts being the predominant themes.

Sharon's original paintings have been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in the United States. Her collector base is international, having sold works to collectors in Switzerland, Germany and the UK.
