Hudson artist Pat Paxson and British artist Kim L Pace present works that explore their individual ideas about people - their physical and mental interactions and transformations.
Paxson’s works are acrylic on canvas, and refer to states of mind, translated into line and color suggestive of dream imagery, memories, personal space and interactions. She conveys the energies involved in the psychical experiences of daily life by the use of bold line and color. The relationships between her ‘partially formed’ figures become tantalizingly close to providing a particular narrative, yet hints and suggestions are never made explicit. She has exhibited extensively in the U.S. and the U.K.
Pace makes surreal, carnivalesque works that are an investigation into ideas about identity. Her imaginative tableaux-like environments appear as fantastical settings populated with unique figures; also animals, plants and other, shifting forms. Created through a process of assemblage, her practice hinges on the tensions between the disparate elements in her works, between reality and fantasy, and the relationship between our inner lives and the physical world. She exhibits internationally.
The artists met nearly 20 years ago at Wimbledon College of Art in London where Paxson was completing an MA in Fine Art Drawing and Pace held the Linbury Fellowship in Drawing. Their common interests and friendship has led to the continuation of their dialogue over the years, in spite of, in recent years, having studios on different continents.
