More Art

“In spite of the many years I have spent painting murals and working with fabric, I believe that my most refined work remains my boxes, assemblages and collages. In the fabrications, I have combined fabric and collage. Someday I hope to create a body of work that combines my painting with boxes, assemblages and collages, too. As one can imagine, I always enjoy teaching mixed media.”

  • 2012 Sharon Kilfoy Mexico Collages

    These collages were made in Guadalajara and San Pancho, Nayarit Mexico while I was painting “GO BIG ART: Madison to Mexico Mural Project” in early 2012. Most of the items in them were purchased or gathered in Gadalajara. Included in each collage is a paper boat made by a second grader at the Drexel Bilingual School where the first artist-in-residency was held.

  • Boxes By Sharon Kilfoy

    “Words cannot describe the complexity of these pieces or the amazement they produce, but let me recommend these boxes filled with gleanings from Canadian antique stores, Mexico City market places, the dime stores of Laredo, Texas and St. Vincent’s in Madison. Purple wings tucked into a handkerchief of printed violets, faded photographs, holy cards, seashells, bangles, jewelry, velvet, holy statues, baby bracelets, little bones, mirrors, motors and sheets from old books.”

  • Assemblages by Sharon Kilfoy

    “The most striking aspect of Ms. Flores’s (Kilfoy) work is the continuity and often poignancy she creates by skillfully assembling elements that are sometimes literal, sometimes abstract, yet always accessible.”

    “Her finest achievement is her understanding and control of mood. An ‘economic’ artist and a determined self-disciplinarian, Ms. Flores (Kilfoy) has mostly limited herself to small 3/D collage with found materials and mounted boxes. This practice has lent her product considerable refinement and technical assurance.”

    “Ms. Flores (Kilfoy) has demonstrated the universal appeal of her sculptural collage art all the way from prize-winning at major regional exhibits (such as Beloit College Annual) to attracting young people of diverse racial and cultural backgrounds to study and produce their own collage works.”

    “Hers is the perfect medium for ethnic expression and intergenerational communication.”

  • Collages by Sharon Kilfoy

    “My interest in diverse cultures, especially my love of Hispanic cultures is evident in the current exhibit. The little charms are ‘milagros’ or ‘miracles’ which I purchased from street vendors. They are pinned to the robe of the statue of a person’s favorite saint in order to bring benefit. Thus, a milagro of a house will bring blessings to one’s home.”
