Description

During a painting expedition to Longleat, England, I was immediately drawn to the majestic rooftop of Longleat House, the 17th century home of the Marquess of Bath. I developed a series of paintings devoted to the rooftop. The scenery offers decorative chimney tops and bellcotes, which form a city of its own. The chimney tops become iconic, along with the surrounding structures.

The Musical in Form, translates an image in a structural format, geometrical in shape. The chimney tops can represent "little people" watching over their territory, as guardians of the rooftop, yet not as tall as the gold dome. Each form is in balance and individual. There is a musical element happening between them, uplifting and harmonious. It can also be read as candy, fruity, a desirable setting.

The Musical in Form, was first exhibited during Patricia's Solo Show, titled New Paintings,  at SOMA Gallery, San Francisco, March 2004. Followed by group show in 2005 at Double Punch Gallery, exhibition titled Five. This painting was also exhibited at some other smaller shows in the city, and was sold in February, 2010 to a private art collector residing in Oakland, CA.
