Sharon Lockhart's large-scale photographs would seem to be ordinary portraits of people, yet their simultaneous grandeur and quiet disrupt our sensibilities. Often the images draw on the history of European portrait painting. For instance, Lockhart has drawn inspiration in her subjects' stance and in background settings from 17th-century Dutch and 18th-century British portraiture, and the atmospheric paintings of Caspar David Friedrich. Lockhart's large c-prints were exhibited in the 1997 Whitney Biennial, the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC. She is based in Los Angeles, CA.
