Abstract:
Patricia Wersinger  
(click on images to enlarge)


Patricia Wersinger is a self-taught artist who grew up in Alsace in the East of France, working in watercolor, oil and acrylic on paper, canvas and wood panels. Her whimsical illustrations and paintings are a mixture of expressionism, realism, children art, folk art, surrealism, primitive and abstract art. Some paintings are playful and bright, childlike and magical and others dark, grim and enigmatic. The notion of the personal and intimate is not popular in contemporary art but for Patricia the discovery of who she is and what strange worlds live within her is what makes every painting an interesting journey. Titillating between realistic conventions and free flowing compositions and abstraction, her visual world represents the diary of an ever evolving self and its visionary dream. Playing with conventional realistic illusions and using them as props reveal invisible unconscious forces as if through a third eye. Patricia thinks that the work of art is a parallel world by which we create another time and another dimension that are legitimate in their own right. It is a way of breaking with ordinary time and the world of appearances and reach to the timelessness and infinity of truth. A recipient of the Barbara Susman award, Patricia lives and works in New York City.
