As Rachel Frankford noted in her review in the Philadelphia City Paper: “…Sharp continues his fascination with quirky combinations of human and natural elements by placing domestic objects in the natural world and vice versa. Trees sprout from wood floors. Ivy hangs from a bathroom rack instead of a towel. A framed photo of a tree in winter hangs from the tree itself, or so it first appears; it might be the other way around, and the small space inside the frame shows the actual tree. Which is an image of an image, and which is reality? …the photos… come close to the bottomless strangeness of the best surrealist art.”
