Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present Vaporous Quill, a solo exhibition of all new works by Sharon Que.

“There is a scaffolding system that exists for each of my sculpture exhibitions made up of the interactions with people, nature, music and art that I have come across accidentally or made great efforts to experience.

My imagery can take the form of data visualization algorithms.  Algorithmic operations describe motion and growth; data visualization aims to reduce the clutter to make complex data more accessible.

My accumulation of materials, relationships and data is like a vaporous quill always in a transitory state.  This exhibition is a three dimensional journal, making sense of my first hand accounts.”
