ARTISTS / Patricia McParlin


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 an instant synthesis of thought and emotion, challenging divisions between what is seen and imagined, observed and remembered.  An expression both literal and metaphorical in the same moment.


'I partly see my art as a form of visual poetic, or static music….the impulse to transform…to harmonise discords…walking the line in-between beauty and brutality…the bitter sweet…'


I am currently concerned with the physicality of painting; colour, form, space, texture and the alchemy that can arise from a response to materials.
