Statement of a Journey

Patricia Walsh

 

  • LONG AGO while visiting museums in Europe, I discovered the underlying beauty and clarity of forms found in great paintings - and the not-so-great forms in lesser ones. My spiritual quest through the years has been to find these forms in my own voice

 

  • ATTEMPTS AT ABSTRACTION in the early years were too much like what other artists had done. I turned to observable figures, landscapes, corners of rooms, windows anything that I could manipulate, arrange and color for my own needs.

 

  • THERE WAS MORE I wanted to do with color and depth of field than images would allow. I started working with broken color and made field paintings with contrasting edges. These became too easy and I stopped working.

 

  • I STOPPED. I started again, slowly experimenting with "found" forms and colors to make the body of work I am now engaged in.

 

  • I HAVE DONE woodcuts, drawings, watercolors, sculpture and design work. Oil paint is for me, the only medium that allows discovery and change on the piece as it progresses towards - and one hopes gets to - that "ah hah" moment when one’s inner life is reflected with richness and truth.
