Patricia Watwood | American Figurative Painter | 1971

This time, I have got one more artist to share art works here. Well her name is Patricia Watwood and she was born in 1971 in America. Its precise to say that Patricia’s works and paintings travel through the worlds of mythology, allegory and contemporary human life. She beautifully portrays her thoughts and creativity on the canvas and her images and paintings are very carefully designed to convey the beauty and charm of the visual world. We can say that by looking at her art works, one can definitely say that her paintings truly reflect the artist’s search for desire and meaning for spiritual connection with both the viewers and subjects. Her one such painting named “Faith in the Wilderness” which was made in 2011 was a true example of Patricia Watwood’s awesome talent of combining classical technique, personal philosophy and contemporary sensibility. She says that her works and paintings are an allegory about her motives and believes for painting and the art world. She also adds that “the model is the unattainable beauty and affection of ‘perfect’ painting. The landscape is the urban jungle that is my world. Faith is what is required to traverse the distance between the hope and the reality. The wilderness is many faceted-uncertain prospects, an uncharted course, the complex art world, or even just the impossible passage across that expanse of cheek between the nose and ear.
I pick up my palette and keep traveling”. Her works have bought her many accolades and she caught the eyes of editors of different publications who have featured her art works at numerous publications which includes landing twice on the cover of American Artist magazine. Her art works are in many public and private collections. She works on commission too which includes a portrait of the astronomer Cecelia Payne-Gaposchkin for Faculty Hall at Harvard University, anti-lynching and the journalist Ida B.
