Sharon's paintings create a universe of lists, shapes, words and letters; a visual vocabulary of notations, sounds, colors, aromas and thoughts. Her forms arise from the essential needs, both material and emotional, of everyday life. Kaitz's work is rich in symbolic references that resonate with deep psychological and emotional intensity.
