PAT O'HARA | Linearity
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
January 7 - 18, 2017
From her more representative works of snowy scenes, to soft patterns of concentric lines, and pastel hues, Pat O’Hara’s recent paintings explore the motif of strings, but with a higher velocity: strokes are soft and bright, simultaneously explosive and strong. There is visible confidence in the artist's choice of bold colours, while her inclusion of playful accents on white and black strands stand out among the varying chroma, giving these paintings a sense of grounding. Experiments with resin add luminosity and dimension to her work.
Enriched by the shades of forest, sea, and nature, Linearity demonstrates a sense of certainty and assertion in O'Hara's artistry.
