Pandora's Box

Nicholas Thompson Gallery Collingwood Melbourne. May/June 2021

According to Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman. She was created by Zeus to punish humankind when Prometheus stole fire from the Gods. Pandora was given a box (or jar), and told to never open it; which of course made it irresistible. When she opened it, all kinds of destructive elements were flung into the world.

I am reimagining this story, as being a search for the hidden and unseen. Everyone should be encouraged to be curious and question things.

This exhibition has large and smaller scale oil paintings, as well as an installation of over 50 small framed work which are like vignettes or fragments of poetry. Many of these are in antique frames or items I bought in flea markets in Paris and antique shops. This installation includes objects that the viewer can engage with in a tactile manner– turning a handle, holding and looking into, and opening the doors to reveal images.

Pandora’s Box is the first exhibition I have had in Melbourne for a long time. I am excited to be showing this collection of paintings which depict the coexistence of the real and the imagined. The viewer is invited to bring their own interpretation.

Wendy Sharpe: Ghosts

Mosman Art Gallery, Sydney. Dec 2020 to Mar 2021.

"Whether one likes Wendy’s work or not it would be hard not to admire her energy and commitment. No matter how big the challenge, she’s up for it, painting murals on the walls, clustering hundreds of small works on paper, creating an installation out of painted lampshades… If you’re going to be an artist you have to love what you do, even to the point of obsession."

John McDonald - Sydney Morning Herald 30 January 2021

In this new exhibition Wendy has created a series of major new site specific ephemeral mural paintings specifically designed for the exhibition spaces within the Mosman Art Gallery. The ephemeral mural works are accompanied by oil paintings and works on paper from Sharpe’s studio based practice that explore the intersection between the real and the imagined worlds - the seen and unseen - and our human experiences of the spirit world.

The phenomena of the unseen worlds of spirits and ancestry, along with the dialogue between perception and experience, the eye and the brain, are subjects that have long fascinated Wendy Sharpe. The exhibition title Ghosts also has a personal connection to Sharpe’s own ancestry with her Russian-Jewish family background. Sharpe’s maternal grandmother Bessie Fishman and her great aunt Ann Fishman were both psychic and were followers of Madam Blavatsky (1831- 1891), a Russian occultist, philosopher and author. Ann Fishman in particular became a well-known psychic and medium in her day, who gave public readings and performances in Russia and the UK.

Sharpe references this family history as well as Victorian ‘ghost’ photographs from the late 19th century, where double exposure imagery created portraits that also captured a lurking spirit within them. Sharpe uses such images as a basis to explore the cultivated beliefs that lie within us, beliefs formed through our ancestral lines, or beliefs generated by the public discourse of our times as well as those inexplicable beliefs about the spirit world that are innate and intuitive to ourselves.

While Wendy Sharpe is known to many as a painter of large scale portraits, in this exhibition Sharpe employs a range of scales from large mural works through to oil paintings as well as miniature works that depict people, both real and imagined, images of spirits, ghosts, memories of people, imaginary friends, alternate lives, alter egos or hallucinatory forms.

The exhibition included a performative element with viewers being invited to witness the artist’s creative processes on site as the murals were made, opening up opportunities to create discussion with people of different cultural backgrounds to share with their own cultural practices, beliefs, customs as well as stories from the community.


Wendy talked psychics, pandemic dreams and about her painting of Sharon Strzeleck on ABC TV's 'The Mix'. The episode was published on ABC's iview (21/11/2020) and can be viewed via this link

WINNER - Calleen Art Award 2019


Wendy was delighted to find herself the winner of the Calleen Art Award 2019 with her painting Erskineville Train Station.. The painting will now join the gallery collection.









This exhibition of sixty works featured a double series of recent paintings: 'Paris Stories' and 'The Western Front'. The former consists of vignettes reflecting Sharpe's observations of living in Paris, as she does for part of every year, through fragments of stories that spark imagination and narrative in Parisian scenes. The latter series was inspired by a visit to the battle sites of the Western Front, WWI, in Northern France and Belgium. A former Official Australian War Artist, Sharpe is intrigued by how sites of trauma are commemorated.

Wendy was delighted to be invited to take part in this the second exhibition in a series of collaborations between three Sydney metropolitan public galleries, Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and the National Trust’s S. H. Ervin Gallery. It follows in the footsteps of the jointly presented and highly successful exhibition, Destination Sydney in 2015. Held over the summer of 2015-2016, Destination Sydney was unprecedented in its achievement and showcased artworks responding to the theme of Sydney as a destination for creative endeavours.

Destination Sydney: Re-imagined returned to the subject of Sydney as a source of inspiration for so many artists who have been drawn to its unrivalled landscapes. The exhibition presented the work of nine major Australian artists whose contributions have become synonymous with the landscape of Sydney.

Artists at S. H. Ervin Gallery were Wendy Sharpe, Nicholas Harding, and Jeffrey Smart.

State Library of NSW, Macquarie St, Sydney.

Wendy Sharpe is excited to be among only a handful of artists to date to be given exclusive back-of-house access to the 107 year-old Mitchell Building. The State Library which has not undergone any major work since 1964 is now undergoing an exciting $15 million transformation.
“The State Library has always been a place close to my heart,” said Wendy. “I used to come here with my father historian Alan Sharpe while he was researching various historic texts and photographs. I have also spent time here researching the endlessly fascinating collection for various projects,” Wendy said.
She has been drawing and painting – mostly in gouache (opaque watercolour) – a range of subjects and views from the rooftop right down to the floors below street level, depicting the major changes that have taken place. Sharpe has work in the amaze gallery and 3 huge 3 metre light box drawings.

Paris Windows

King Street Gallery on William, Sydney NSW August/September 2018

Maria Stoljar interviewed Wendy Sharpe for episode 45 of the 'Talking with Painters' podcast in May 2018. Wendy talks about her work in progress for her exhibition 'Paris Windows'


PARIS WINDOWS - Imagined lives

I first visited Paris in 1987 on a traveling art scholarship and artist studio residency at Cite Internationale des Arts. I have stayed there several times since, also in many hotels and apartments. In 2010 my partner Bernard Ollis and I bought an apartment in northern Montmartre, where we live part of every year. We are lucky to have 9-metre-long balcony, wide enough for narrow tables and chairs. We are on the 6th floor /top (with a tiny lift) and have a stunning view of apartments, roofs and chimneys leading up the hill towards Sacré Coeur.
When we first moved in to the apartment I realised how close we were to those around us and wondered what the etiquette was - do you acknowledge the people you see around you every day? I then discovered unspoken ‘pretend privacy’ of the 6th floor. You act as though you see nothing. An odd situation, where you can see glimpses of the intimate world of people you don’t know. Some of the images in this exhibition are based on our neighbours and people I have actually seen though not literally depicted, and some are entirely imagined. The rooms are mysterious, like fragments of unknown plays, sometimes a set waiting for the action to start. The viewer imagines their own narratives all of which are valid. I loved making up characters, décor and scenarios. Like most of us, I am intrigued by other lives, other alternatives. I was a bit worried all this might seem a bit too voyeuristic or creepy, but then really it is fiction.
The paintings relate to Hitchcock’s classic film Rear Window (in french Fenêtre sur Cour) although an American film set in New York, it has a particular resonance in Paris. Central Paris is said to be the most densely populated city in Europe. I looked again at American artist Edwards Hopper’s New York window paintings, and also many German Expressionist artists between the wars - including the wood cuts of Frans Marsereel The City -a Vision, the paintings of Max Beckmann, Conrad Felixmueller, Marianne von Werefrin and others.
We have nick names for many of our actual neighbours, as no doubt they do for us.
“The Writer”- a woman who sits on her balcony every morning in a green dressing gown drinks coffee and writes something non- stop in a thick exercise book. What is she writing?
“The Intellectuals”- a man who actually wears a cravat and is often seen reading in a leather chair next to an overflowing book case.
“The Don Quixote’s” named after the Poster of Picasso’s Don Quixote above the TV that is always on, while young women (students?) lie around on bean bags eating Pizzas - the pizza motor bike delivery across the road is always for them.
“The Smokers” - a couple who always used to come out on the balcony opposite to smoke, now she has quit and is pregnant. Who is that woman with her husband?

I am fascinated by the way you can live so close to people and not know them. Across the road from us we see little bits of ‘drama’ in rooms next to each other. They may have no idea who is just a wall away. It is sometimes hard to know which rooms are part of the same apartment or if they are totally separate, for example our bedroom shares a wall with the next building, we can hear children running and laughing. They are in different buildings with a different entrance. The people opposite would see us and them together but we have no idea who they are.

Interiors, an exhibition curated by Gavin Wilson from the work of eighteen artists includes paintings by Wendy Sharpe. The selection of Sharpe paintings includes some from her residency at Haefliger Cottage, Hill End.

In the exhibition catalogue, Wilson writes of the painting pictured above: During her inaugural residency at the cottage, Wendy Sharpe was keenly aware of the surrounds, finding inspiration from all aspects of the cottage including the idiosyncratic showering arrangement. It required a canvas bag of hot water to be raised by a rope pulley, releasing the water through a valve. Looking at In the shower, Hill End 1994, we see the artist mastering the challenge with her inimitable verve and wit.

Wendy Sharpe honoured with aFellowship from The National Art School


The National Art School, Sydney. 24th May, 2018

The National Art School Fellowship acknowledges the achievements of eminent visual artists, arts administrators,writers, advocates and academics who have made outstanding contributions to the visual arts community in Australia. The Fellowship is an honorary award for exceptional achievement and / or service within the professional domain, awarded annually by the National Art School.

The 2018 recipients of National Art School Fellowships have been announced, with the honour bestowed upon renowned painters Wendy Sharpe and Michael Johnson.The 2018 Fellows were honoured at a celebratory dinner on Thursday 24 May 2018, held at the National Art School in a gallery space that was once the studio of celebrated Australian sculptor and NAS teacher, Rayner Hoff. Presented at the annual Graduation ceremony alongside completing Bachelor and Master of Fine Art students, the Fellowship is the School’s highest award. Director Steven Alderton says of the Fellows: “In recognising these two prominent alumni, we are recognising their immense contributions to Australian art. Their work and their careers are inspirations to our students.”

"NAS has always been a place for artists – enthusiastic, creative and exciting, where making art is the most important thing. It has always had a wonderful camaraderie between staff and students and an atmosphere of working, and experimenting. The central place of drawing in the curriculum is to be applauded and I hope will never change. NAS helps students to understand the artistic process, setting them up for life – not merely giving them a degree. This is only art school I would study in myself if I was starting out now.'Wendy Sharpe, 2018.

Aarwun Gallery, Federation Square, O'Hanlon Place, Nicholls, Canberra, ACT. March/April, 2018

Artists, writers and composers have travelled to foreign countries in search of new experiences, since the days of the grand tour, often producing some of their most original and important work. In different surroundings, all the senses are heightened and there is a freshness of vision which is communicated directly to the viewer. Whenever I arrive for the first time in a foreign environment, the best way I can begin to get an understanding of what it looks like, how things are connected, and how people move in and out of it, is to sit and draw it. After a while what was incomprehensible, starts to make sense. Travel and painting are my two preoccupations. I am always planning my next trip. This travel obsession started when I won a travelling scholarship in my 20’s, since then I have travelled as often as possible. I now live part of every year working in my Paris apartment with my partner Bernard Ollis. There is nothing more exciting than wandering through the streets of a foreign city, whether the cultural differences are subtle or dramatic. Newness and difference intensify the experience and can give a deeper understanding of yourself. The painting and drawings are not postcards or reportage, they are about the actual experience of being there - they help to distil the experience. As Susan Sontag says, I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. This exhibition includes work from places such as France, Italy, Antarctica, Cambodia, Mexico, Laos, India and country Australia. Most of the work on paper in this exhibition was made on site.

Wendy Sharpe recreated Hogarth’s 'The Enraged Musician' in front of an audience, to the sounds of the Australian Art Quartet. Wendy described the scene depicted (pictured above with Sharpe's drawing overlayed) in William Hogarth’s engraving The Enraged Musician. “We have a man trying to play what looks like a violin, with his hands clasped over his ears in despair because outside there are all these people on the streets, screaming baby, barking dog and he just can’t concentrate because of the racket.

Seeking Humanity - Portraits & Stories of Asylum Seekers & Refugees

May 2015 (photo: Wendy and Antionette)

I have drawn portraits of 39 refugees and asylum seekers as a contribution to creating public awareness of the challenges they face and to introduce us to a few of these people.

All of the portraits are in full colour and are drawn in pastel. They are drawn from life in 2-3 hours. I am drawing people:

*Who are living legally in the community while they wait for their applications for protection to be processed.

*Who have recently been granted protection and are starting to rebuild their lives in Australia

*Who Came to Australia in earlier periods and have since made an enormous contribution to Australia.

This is not about politics. It is about our common humanity. I want to show that they are people like us, with the same hopes and dreams. Many of those I have met during this project have fled situations of great danger, whether it is political, cultural or religious.
I cannot even imagine how it would feel to have to leave everything behind. But they have had to leave their family, their home, their culture and their country. They have survived and are now focussed on rebuilding their lives, starting all over again. They have been an incredible inspiration.

Early in 2015 an exhibition was formed in conjunction with the Asylum Seekers Centre in Sydney. Cards accompanying each portrait contained a brief story about why they came here, their hopes and dreams for the future, as well as their personal interests

I did not be receive any commission at all, from the exhibition, I felt it would be wrong to do so. All money raised went to support the Asylum Seekers Centre. The Centre provides personal and practical support to over 1,500 asylum seekers, such as legal advice, accommodation, health care, food and employment assistance. As a grassroots, non-profit organisation, it has to rely on grants, donations and volunteers to undertake its work.
After kicking off in Sydney the exhibition moved to Canberra then Penrith Regional Gallery.
I wanted to attract people who have not been involved with asylum seekers but are concerned or confused about who they are and why they come to Australia.

A video was made during the portrait sittings in which I discuss the concept behind the project as well as the drawing process. This video can be viewed at
A catalogue was also produced, containing the portraits and the individual stories.

I also gave those asylum seekers and refugees who participated a small signed copy of their portrait to as a personal thank you.

One of the most rewarding aspects of the project has been to see the asylum seekers relax while I draw them. They ask me to see them for the people they really are, not a group of people who have been given a label. They say that just for a few hours, it is an escape from the daily stress and worry about their current and future lives.
