I paint resilience but not always through the depiction of the figure. My oil paintings are realistic portrayals of the garbage, trash cans and drain pipes as a way to convey the idea that humans are often required to find something beautiful in a hard situation in order to keep going. The ability of a human being to do this is the essence of resilience.

Patrice Robinson (@patdowart)
Patrice Robinson was born in Queens, and works full-time in NYC. She’s a self- taught visual artist.
Patrice’s primary focus is in portraiture. Also, her primary medium is oil paint, which she uses on wood panels. When painting a portrait, Patrice likes to work in loose layers, building up the painting slowly, until she’s ready to define and highlight key areas. She is influenced by many artists who have and do work in contemporary realism or surrealism, for example, René Magritte, Lena Danya, Alyssa Monks, Kehinde Wiley and Kerry James Marshall.
She also continues to gain inspiration from her personal experiences. Self- reflection is very important to Patr

"I paint to find out what I think about the world; to discover the things I do not have words for. I savor the slips of the hand that reveal my unconscious feelings about the person being painted. I am interested in the conversation between abstraction and realism. My paintings explore the tension between what needs to be shown and what does not, the seen and the unseen."
