Before you take up your blade, Sharon who do you see? Will you be cutting to heal or incising to free some carefully hidden, some up-til-now unbidden me?
When you take up your blade and test the fresh edge do you have an image of a me fixed in your head? Can you see in your mind a kinda-me roughly out sketched?
When you make your first cut do you have a clear vision of what I'll reveal have you made your decision as you press down and carefully cleave with loving conceiving precision?
When you lay your blade down do you see I've appeared? Do you know I'm complete when the excess is cleared? Or when you sleep do you wonder whether there's a less of a me maybe a more of a me silently waiting here?
You need to see Sharon Walter's art to fully understand this. She cuts away at images to reveal something new. Quite remarkable. www.londonartist1.com
