My work references landscape with gestural marks and color, as well as grids that suggest space and depth. Through this process of mapping and diagramming I explore and record where and how grids and gestural marks intersect. With each new painting and drawing I probe deeper into the forms and marks.
I create work that consolidates, reflects and simplifies my knowledge and consciousness of my own world, yet addresses the universal concerns I have about the environment, politics and struggles of many others. Patricia Ingersoll
