Sharon Dowell tackles the complexity of time in layers


By Andrew Huang
JUNE 27, 2014

If only time was so neat as to fit on a tidy line. But as painter Sharon Dowell sees it, history is composed of an infinite number of threads: each of our choices woven and intertwined by the universe’s guiding (or unguiding) hand. The present moment is only a product of these knotted influences. But Dowell is not daunted by the task of unraveling such complexity. Her solo exhibition Re: tackles the murky mystique of the South, which she characterizes as “an honor culture, complex, simultaneously full of triumph, sordid controversy, charm, and nostalgia.” Familiar architecture and landscapes come to the fore, but faintly visible underpaintings and vibrant colors suggest life beyond contemporary geometries. Rather, they spill forth a rich tapestry of past generations uncontained by the present.                                          

Re:, a solo exhibition of Sharon Dowell’s work, is on display at Gallery Seventeen until July 25. The gallery, located at 17 W North St, Greenville, is open Mon, by appointment; Tues & Wed, 11am–6pm; and Thurs–Sat, 11am–7pm.
