Pat Conway's artist statement, "Nature's treasures bring me joy. When we connect, I do my best to receive them and show them with curiosity and affection. My process depends on how they strike me. It is experimental, multi-media, gestural. The new work on paper is acrylic/pastel/pencil/charcoal/pen...So, the work shows my take on the subject. It is reduced by abstraction, transformed by angle.
I have always abstracted from the nature surrounding me up close. Series include Rockcuts in Colorado and Arizona, Rock-in-Water during the graduate program, and Reflections after. Exploration in New Mexico began with works combining various elements found here--hills, mesas, and plants, etc. in mixed media on papers. New Mexico Earth focused on color, pattern, and texture of the hills, mesas, spires--including volcanic stone, lava, clay hills, desert varnish, pumice, sandstone, minerals, granite, etc. These pieces are on square panels in acrylic with mixed media. Last year I painted a series on paper of Primitive Plinths radiating their history. This year I have begun a series of plants at their ending season when dry and losing leaves, now progressing into spring. I want my work to be spontaneous, little off center, unbalanced, lively, attenuated, thoughtful and to have a backstory."
