Artist Statement

Patricia Kenny

Transformative experiences are universal to the human condition; they are interwoven in our lives as life-altering events.  Drawing inspiration from my own experiences and using them as raw material, I express in vibrant abstract works themes of vulnerability, survival, resilience and rebirth.  Imagery within the work is compelling, mysterious and often mystical or surrealistic. Direct and action-filled physicality in the process taps into the subconscious resulting in primordial, passionate and universal paintings. The paintings are authentic and narrative expressions about the energies of transformation as they relate to my experience of being human.
