Patricia Fabricant
Brooklyn, NY

Neighborhood: Prospect Heights

ARTIST STATEMENT: My work can be considered a meditation on color and line. My aim is to move beyond thought and conscious intent into a pure visual, visceral space. I draw inspiration from such diverse sources as Aboriginal songline paintings, Islamic tiles, and contemporary process-driven art. The meditative aspect relates both to my process and to the viewer’s experience. I want your eyeballs to vibrate, a little.
