Patricia Slosiar: Studies in Abstraction
On one’s first encounter with Patricia Slosiar’s work, the depth of color and movement transports the viewer to another world – both of the artist’s creation and your own. It is through Slosiar’s purposeful design in her exploration of ideas to embrace change, bringing the viewer along for the journey.
“Every creation has own mood. It is changing and that’s exactly how it's supposed to be.”
What is your relationship to abstraction?
It is something special. I imagine that is the world behind the dark blue curtain. Abstraction is the way how you can see your own reality in the way which is at the time the best reminder of yourself.
I gave the abstraction space to express itself as the greatest benefit for the world and bring more consciousness to this reality.

Can you explain the different styles found in your work?
Gladly! Every moment, every creation is different also it is the same author. For me it is different even more. I am using lot of styles, putting them together or use them when is right time for it. I love to change style because it is fresh, something new and unpredictable. It is always surprise. And what I love to do is listening what wants to come through my hands. Sometimes there are shapes, long movements with hands or short brush strokes. The works are different also because there is time when I am more playing with components and time when I am dancing, jumping and splashing colors. Every creation has own mood. It is changing and that’s exactly how it's supposed to be.

How do you get ideas for your painting?
It’s coming spontaneously from me. I am asking for something beautiful to come and I’ll let myself be surprised. Later I see connection between my experiences, situations, places or people in my life and painting.
Do you use any other materials or mediums outside of acrylic paint?
Yes I do, however acrylic is dominant. I love to use oil pastel, stones, wood and paper.
