Patricia Oxley - Work in Process

PosterAn exhibition by Patricia Oxley of paintings,drawing and digital prints.

Patricia’s method involves life drawings and paintings made with traditional media. Some of this traditionally produced work is then digitally enhanced or perhaps merged with other images and used to produce paintings which are in turn enhanced and merged to create something new. Hence the image is never stable, but always in a state of being processed, on the way to being made larger, more visible. The result is a vibrant mixture of what’s immediately visible to the human eye and what is not, sometimes recognisable, sometimes abstract, but always interesting.
