PVA glue, drawing ink, spray paint on watercolour paper
Early in Sharp's academic studies of art, he researched the effects of mental health through art and how one can use creation as an expressive outlet. Through studies of a lost love one and a quote by the Chapman brothers, Sharp explored the idea of discovering one's mental state presented in one’s artwork. Sharp's work tries to encapsulate the feeling one may have when placed in an uncomfortable and harsh environment, however, through the creation of art one can feel free.
