About the artist, Sharon McCartney: The natural world allows itself to be discovered again and again, as we cross its boundaries with our own and try to reconcile its small, private moments with the cacophonies of our own worlds. My attention has long been held by the glimpses and discoveries found in nature; they have become my source of sanctuary and personal rhythm. These fiber sculptures are inspired by the traditions of amulet and talisman making. I am interested in ways that ritual and iconography have long created ties with the natural world. Totems, talismans, and amulets have often signified nature meeting personal definition. I invite the viewer to experience these forms as both art objects and as containers for the positive forces that they represent.
