Academy Award-nominated actress Sharon Stone has turned her back on acting as she embraces her new life as an artist.
The actress said since she picked up a paintbrush at the beginning of the pandemic, her life has changed.
“I just get in this kind of trance.”
Her work is currently on show at a gallery in New York. The exhibition titled “Welcome To My Garden” is on until the beginning of December.
One of her paintings have created a stir among those who have visited the gallery. The painting, with the same title as the exhibition, shows a ghostly serpentine form coiled around a pair of carefully rendered flowers.
“I think that many people are disrespecting the planet, pretending that there isn’t climate change, there’s no environmental climate crisis. And (they believe) if they just ignore it, that it will go away.”
During an interview with CNN, the Basic Instinct actress said she experiments with different techniques and materials, from paint rollers to pickleball court tape, to achieve the effects she wants.
“I use metallic paint a lot because I do really love that reflective quality.”
