Reflex by Patricia Volk
My obsession as an artist is catching a very simple form or line, then enhancing it with colour. Sometimes these are juxtapositions that I hope suggest contradictions of strength and fragility, stability and precariousness €“ like the relationships between human beings. But also of rest and activity, grace and motion, that give an object a lively presence and a sense of inpidual character. But really all this is open to the eye of the beholder. I never want to be too prescriptive, and in saying this much I've probably said too much.
