News — Dumfries and Galloway
Posted by Kim Soep on
We are delighted to present new work by multi-award-winning artist Patricia Paolozzi Cain. Based in rural Dumfries and Galloway, Patricia Paolozzi Cain's often large-scale works of art form an active and shaping force that exists between the artist and her physical environment. Tangled tree branches, dense hedgerows, a fusion of fallen leaves, sedges and thickets are the preamble to Paolozzi Cain's abstracted compositions. Getting lost in nature's cosmos is for Paolozzi Cain a means to look inward, to introspect. In her own words, she says, "I focus on nature as a gateway to the internal mind." Using a process of intense scrutiny, where she transposes and edits what she sees before her, Paolozzi Cain turns observations into a rich, meditative language that is as much rooted in place as it is in consciousness.
