An abstract view of a stormy evening, with gentle rain falling across the landscape. Artist Pat Forbes flattened the foreground, horizon and sky into one plane, letting elements of each space merge into one another in a harmonious display of grays and blues. "The rain at night is barely seen but pervades the atmosphere, with its soft patter playing the rhythm of sleep," says Pat.
Pat Forbes is an abstract painter whose aesthetic is heavily influenced by her 20 years as a collector and dealer of Middle Eastern textiles. Pat, who lives on the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts, uses a neutral palette to present her interpretation of the world around her– from marshes and mountains to stones and spiderwebs. She is drawn to pattern and design, both of which influence the use of balanced repetition in her work. Pat’s muted colors invite pensive meditation, while her deliberate use of line guides the eye through satisfyingly symmetrical compositions.
