This field of sunflowers and corn with the strong shadow from an encina tree and fence, in the middle of the day, is off the La Barquera track where a mass of huertas grow a wide range of products. The variety of colours and shapes are just what Christo is looking for in a composition.
Clear, bold and confident, Christo Sharpe is a lifelong painter who closes in on a subject to pull your attention to the colours, shapes and details in front of him. His strong colours and compositions are delightfully simple and appealing. He is an enthusiastic traveller and walker and it is often on these walks that his subjects reveal themselves. If he can take the subject in front of him and encourage the viewer to see something new and exciting in that image then he has achieved what he wants in his art. To generate an awareness that might otherwise be missing. This is work that looks and feels fresh.
