Artist Statement I am interested in the power art has to transgress boundaries. It can be in, (at least), two places at once; inner and outer, real and imagined, present and past. It offers the possibility of an immediate synthesis of thought and emotion, of a psychological and a ‘felt’ space, blurring imposed divisions between what is seen and imagined, observed and remembered. An expression that can be both literal and metaphorical in the same instant. I partly see my art work as a form of visual poetic, or static music…. …there is the same impulse to transform…to harmonise discords… …to walk the line in-between beauty and brutality…the bitter sweet… I have worked in many art forms, including video, installation, sculpture, ceramics, writing, theatre and music. All of these inform my work, but painting has recently been my major focus. I am currently concerned with the physicality of painting; colour, form, space, texture and the resonances that can arise from the alchemy of a response to materials.
Patricia's artistic style
My visual art is very influenced by my other work in music and writing... palette, texture and form are also critical to my expression.
