ARTIST STATEMENT:

“I work primarily in stone and bronze, attempting to capture light and shadows so they can become part of the sculpture itself.  I feel my function as a sculptor is to try to convey the elements of emotion and vision to the viewer.  Most of my work has been influenced by the female figure; there is a feeling I get from the feminine form that translates so well to sculpture.  Because I prefer to work abstractly, I look at the negative space in some pieces as the soul and energy of the work.  I feel the negative space in sculpture can have as much impact as the positive form.  I enjoy the freedom my medium gives me for expression, and the additional pleasure of seeing the viewer enjoy both the visual and tactile experience of the finished work.”

Patricia’s work has been published and shown in Galleries fromNew YorktoItalyand her work is in the permanent collections of Fermi Labs, Pepper Construction, Sears Corporate offices, etc.
