New Mexico native William Sharer’s paintings privilege design and color in a powerful manner reminiscent of Gerard Curtis Delano though Sharer’s forms are even more reduced than Delano’s. The power of Sharer’s paintings lies in the sense that the viewer gets that the artist has looked and looked and looked again at his model in Shoshone and at the oft-painted landmark church in Turquoise Door at Ranchos de Taos. Sharer knows his subjects, knows what to paint and what to leave out.
