Description Colored pencil on Bristol board,14 x 8.5The Chemistry was inspired on ancient illustrations on alchemy, and it shows a very rich symbolism based on the four elements. It is actually about inner alchemy, the potential for rebirth that comes from a strong will, strenght, acceptance and understanding of changes.
Patricia Ariel, Frankfort Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I was born in Brazil, where I have lived for over 30 years until moving to the United States. I've been drawing since early childhood, and since my teenage years I’ve explored a large range of artistical modalities: dance, drama, music, design and literature. I see Art as something sacred, intrinsically bonded to the spiritual. The artist is a worker for the Universe, an instrument to unveil what is occult from the ordinary eye, to bring out the freedom of understanding. I use mostly watercolors and pencils and the combination figurative/abstract art to explore metaphysical concepts and the human mind and soul in an archetypal, symbolical form. My work deals with themes like life and its cycles, the unconscious, the sacred feminine, transformation and spiritual evolution and the connections of man with Nature and the Universe.
