About the Artist

Sharon Mossbeck is a UK based Conceptual Artist, primarily painting and working in Contemporary Art Cross-stitch.

Her work focuses on themes of death and religion, with other influences coming from medicine and history. Mossbeck’s atheist beliefs spark a fascination with religion, and her work is perhaps best understood as exploring and questioning how it must be to have faith, in stark opposition to her own views on  what happens after death.

Mossbeck also engages with her practice through curating exhibitions, hosting workshops, writing, talks and guest lectures.


Alternative Portraits Exhibition

Submissions have now closed for Alternative Portraits, and artists will be contacted in due course. The exhibition will be held at Access Space, Sheffield in September 2017.

    That sounds great. The finished piece of work being rigid is not a problem. It sounds really interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing it.
    Many thanks,
