Sharyne WalkerBiography: Sharyne E Walker, Master of Contemporary Fine Art Sharyne E. Walker is, quite simply an American national treasure. Master of literally every form of art upon which she lays her hands and heart, Walker's work is elegant, magical and artistically perfect. Her acrylic paintings, usually worked on linen, are so detailed that one wishes to stand for hours gazing at each piece. She is currently creating a multimedia techno wall sculpture and has recently started painting in miniature. If forced to pick a favorite, it might be The First Temptation. a large piece featuring Eve bathing in a stream whilst being counseled by two beautiful birds on the danger of the approaching snake. The contrasting high color combinations are stunning, the tiniest of details mind boggling, and the content matter thought provoking. The Tattooed Angel would surely take a close second, depicting an Archangel (and most gorgeous man!) tattooed with glorious flowers (and a miniature self portrait of the artist) surveying the foibles of man; pollution, greed, corruption, and considering if earth can be saved. You must set aside some time to visit Walker's gallery site, as mere words will never do her work justice. Most often working under a 10 diopter magnifying glass and with brushes sometimes containing as few as 3 hairs, Sharyne's work is technically exquisite. Technique aside, Walker incorporates her soul into each piece with a mixture of love and wry sense of humor. Sharyne was officially declared an American Master in 1996 at the first International Exhibition of National Acrylic Painters Associations of England and the USA, 1990 Laureat Grand Prix de Paris l'Exposition Internationale d'Arts and winner of more awards, both national and international, than could possibly be named in one article. Sharyne E. Walker truly IS an American Master, and America would do well to hold her to their collective bosoms and proudly proclaim her as their own. She is most certainly one of the finest artists in the world today.
