"My current series of work was born through a long process of sifting through the pieces of grief in the dark and quiet uncertainty after trauma. Amplified by the isolation and disorienting fog of the pandemic, these works capture the personal solace found in analytically confronting the existence of beauty even in profound grief as experienced in the mundane and quotidian. Despite magnifying the fractured fragility in brokenness and growth, these works highlight a delicate, unseen resilience in carrying onwards through struggle with tender hope in the birth of a new day."Sharon Tang

Sharon Tang is a painter, muralist, and scientist currently based in Madison, WI. Sharon’s personal work serves as a vehicle to process the complexity of grief and transformation following academic institutional trauma experienced along her journey while pursuing her PhD.
Her latest collection, created through the isolation of the pandemic, focuses on a visual language of emotional brokenness and rebirth while finding beauty in fragility and vulnerability in the everyday. Meanwhile, her mural work channels creativity outwardly to reclaim space for herself and for others in a landscape imbued with the realities of experienced inequity.
