A Bit of Everything by Patricia House

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday Jan. 10, 5 - 7 pm

The varied works of Patricia House - a solo exhibition in the KAC Main Gallery.

Trying to fit into a single box has never been something I have done well. My interests are varied and fluid. Painting and drawing are only a portion of my many creative outlets. They appeal to me not only creatively but also technically. The many choices of material and methods to work with them are too numerous to count. This experimenting appeals to me when translating a subject to the painting surface. If I were to use only one approach for all my work it would feel almost claustrophobic. I enjoy figuring out the ‘right way’ to do something then asking myself how I can push the rules and this box that we are ‘supposed’ to work in. Is there a different perspective to show?
As I develop as an artist, my desire is to initiate some form of a narrative with my viewer. I want my work to be more than just a ‘pretty picture’. I hope my viewers will smile, perhaps a raise an eyebrow, and delve deeper into the image’s story somehow.
