Patricia Carroll analyses and celebrates living things and the essence of creation through her non-objective and abstract works. She perceives mystery everywhere and attempts to depict this through her use of textures, mark-making, overlays and washes of a limited palette of mainly transparent acrylics. The eye dances throughout, alighting here and there in sheer pleasure.
"As I paint, an irrational gut-wrenching anxiety constantly intrudes. I pick up the brush, to splash colour onto the surface... to begin... to continue... to trust in the process. The tension recedes. I lose myself in movement, feelings, thoughts - all merging. I am immersed and alive."
