Pat Paxson


Pat Paxson creates images that fuse contemporary experimentation with spontaneity, layering, and abstraction. They build on her long term interest in people, their moods, personal space, dreams, memories and interpersonal relationships. Her process of making work is at the heart of its meaning: there is a strong connection between the spontaneity and layering of dreams and memories, and the spontaneity and layering of her work. This interest, combined with a deep interest in improvisation, leads to development of pictorial ways to indicate personal and interpersonal energies in terms of energies of lines, marks and colors. The work is also informed by her interest in meditation, music (playing the cello), and psychology.
