About the Artist
Sharon Mossbeck is a UK based Conceptual Artist.
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, and giving talks and guest lectures.
Contemporary Art Cross-stitch
Sharon Mossbeck is also the pioneer of Contemporary Art Cross-stitch, which is cross-stitch used in a contemporary fine art context. By her own definition, Mossbeck believes that Contemporary Art Cross-stitch should have conceptual foundations and be used as the preferred medium for a piece of work solely because it is appropriate.
Through her work, Sharon Mossbeck hopes to change the perception of cross-stitch in contemporary fine art, and establish it as a legitimate medium.
