Sharon Alviz is a conceptual artist that creates uninhabited compositions on repetitive surfaces. She is interested in experiencing the urban landscape, nature, color, and geometry that no one cares to see. Her perspective transforms chaos into beauty, where the human shape intervenes with an apparent lack of interest.
Her world is filled with geometry and it sustains a deep love for what it represents in the creation. Her color palette is soft, although she usually heightens one color. Willian Eggleston and Lartigue have influenced the way she relates to color. Her sense of aesthetics reflects certain urban style, and her characters speak about life anecdotes with an approach to styling. She tends to capture peaceful, attractive, and sophisticated images, where the aesthetics are harmonious. Solid color is usually part of her scenes; the common subject generates certain visual tension.
Her projects question behaviors and thoughts, which propel her to explore the beauty behind them, and make them into a new possibility, into a new answering stimulus. For her, geometry has its own soul into infinite space and it is there where everything is developed.
Her interest for photography starts when entering a dark room for the first time. Her first photographs were double exposure experiments, with a Camex 3000 in 35mm format.
Sharon Alviz ends her career as a publicist and specializes as a photographer at the “Academia Francesa de la Imagen” (French Academy of Image) in Bogotá. Her first jobs were as a photographer for History Channel, the Community Mayor’s Office from Bogota, Dian (Colombian Internal Revenue Service), Mercedes Benz, and the Social Protection Ministry.
She started her first editorial projects in 2006. In 2008 she achieved her first international publication with the communication media “Men´s Journal” in New York. Since 2017, she retakes her contemporary projects, where she reflects her new thought perspective, creating beauty where she could not see it before.
Sharon Alviz was born in Barranquilla; She currently lives in Puerto Colombia.
