Mad Swirl is thrilled to welcome Sharron Ott to the visual stage with her dark, moody mixed media collage series entitled ‘Saltimbanco.’ The work beautifully captures movement, motion, and with the feature of feathered wings in nearly every piece, a sort of airy lightness amidst the dark. The juxtaposition of whimsy against shadowy, saturated mystery strikes us a bit like a fairytale pre-Disney edit and the works manage to speak perfectly to the ‘acrobatic act of life’ Sharron had in mind when creating these beauties. We here at Mad Swirl have no doubt that you’ll too do some flips too! ~ Madelyn Olson
