Statement

Sharon Van Overmeiren tunes into the infinite flow of visual information of our collective consciousness. She copies and pastes forms that cross her path, introducing shapes to each other to start a formal conversation and strives to capture and exchange. Translating found forms into ceramics is an important part of Van Overmeiren’s process. It is how she strips shapes from their original context, how she finds their essence and equalizes them.
