Patricia's paintings depict the light, space and atmosphere of the unique Australian landscape from the coast to the central deserts in an abstracted and simplified style.
Her aim is to represent places in terms of their colour and light, portraying the atmosphere particular to them rather than the precise forms that constitute them.
Her preferred medium is oil, forging a connection between traditional techniques and contemporary practice.
Patricia's works are inspired by the vastness, stillness and extraordinary beauty of Australias' land and seascapes. They belong to a series of paintings which feature isolated and rare landscapes. They are special places, fragile and as yet unchanged by human intervention, but under increasing threat for profit and power. We need to ensure that these areas of natural beauty survive and thrive. We need the refuge of remoteness to balance the noise and bustle of our lives.
Patricia strives to find her own interpretation of the landscape to create an atmosphere and mood. It is a challenge and an achievement when this is felt by the viewer and speaks louder than words.
