Painting No.31 (Bass Vibrations)
Featured in Art is Spectrum magazine November 2012
Patrice is, and has always been, deeply affected by place. A native of South Africa, she spent her childhood adventuring in that rich landscape and continues to draw her energy from the natural world. She embraces both the strength and fragility of the creatures that occupy this space. Playful, tranquil, mysterious, energetic...her paintings evoke an array of moods and she translates the natural world into redefined realities of colour and design.
In her new collection, Bass Vibrations, Patrice moves into the abstract. Exploring her own childhood memories, she paints of the people and places she has loved. "Each place, each person, each experience leaves me with a lingering vibration of memory" she explains. "these paintings reflect what's stayed with me"
Patrice is represented by Agora Galley in Chelsea Manhattan http://www.agora-gallery.com/default.aspx She has previously held the position of President for The Beach Guild of Fine Art in Toronto, a talented group of 55 artists and has served as the Guild's publicist.
Patrice spends several days a week painting in her studio located in Toronto. She will often be found in arena's across Ontario nurturing the hockey careers of her two daughters. A great deal of time is spent taking in the beauty and the laughter of her little boy.
