Doron Langberg

Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program

20 Jay Street, Suite 720

Doron Langberg creates paintings that focus on love, desire, sexuality, and closeness that depict close friends, lovers, and family members. By foregrounding color, gesture, and the tactility of paint, his work speaks to shared feelings and sensations in contrast to divisive social definitions and functions. His reductive style renders gestures and facial features in simple lines and washes of color, drawing the viewer into the intimacy of each relationship and moment. Langberg’s work asserts the validity and necessity of queerness in sexuality and identity narratives, responding to the subtle but pervasive rejection or dismissal of queer forms of sexuality within the social structures that we inhabit, and aims to humanize queer pleasure, friendship, and intimacy.

About Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free non-living studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies. Its mission is to provide working studio space and community for artists. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury comprised of artists and members of the SWSP Artists Advisory Committee.

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program is the new face of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Space Program, developed for artists, by artists in 1991. In 2014 the program was renamed the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program to honor the legacy of Marie Walsh Sharpe and reflect the new sponsorship and commitment of the Walentas Family Foundation.
