Austin, Texas-based artist Sharon Keshishian is best known today for her illuminated surrealistic neon art pieces. The professional portion of her artistic journey began in the early 80’s when she got a job making stained glass for a well-known local sculptor, Damian Priour. As a young artist, Sharon's work with stained glass naturally evolved into a desire to learn the old art form of bending neon. This fascination with neon led to her opening up Ion Art to produce her own unique pieces. Now, she’s trying to change the way people think about neon and show them, through her work, that neon is so much more than sayings and signage. Her style is whimsical, and it is made with the purpose to bring a joyful awareness to mother nature.
My work doesn't have some grandiose statement of symbolism behind each piece. My art is simply meant for sparking joy. There is enough coverage of the ugly pieces of humanity that my art is intended to highlight the beautiful aspects of our world. I gained inspiration for my surrealist sculptures through my travels and the diverse beauty of nature. Each piece is a whimsical and electrified interpretation of muses provided by Mother Nature.
