Now Be Here: Patrice Dworkin #680
Feeling inspired after attending the historic event Now Be Here at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. My goal is to feature every artist that attended, one artist a day. Considering the number of artists that showed up, this will take me two years to complete. I am looking forward to getting to know the work of each and every artist!
Your inspiration for the day- Now Be Here edition: Patrice Dworkin
From Patrice Dworkin:
Patrice Dworkin is a self-taught artist, working primarily in mixed media on paper. In her process, washes of tone or color are elevated by intricate line drawing. Compositions that begin in two dimensions often rise to three, and translucency and layering are key. Though frequently abstract, her “imaginary maps” take on the appearance of topography, reflecting a narrative quality that echoes the artist’s interest in storytelling, printmaking, and handmade books.
She is strongly influenced by her environment and an acute sense of place, as well as her abiding curiosity about new methods and materials. The memory of a single
statement by the artist Franklyn Liegel has endured for decades: “Sometimes you have to draw what you see with your eyes closed.”
