"Artistic Journey" is a video series dedicated to taking viewers on a journey of Patricia Qualls' paintings.
There is something special about viewing a painting in person; being able to take it in from afar, slowly moving closer to exam the nuances that give the painting its energy and character.
The painting chosen for this edition is Loving Witness II | 72 x 48." This painting is full of energy and color. Mixtures of ochres, oranges, violets, blues and pinks intertwine with varying marks to create a web of warmth. The closer one looks at the painting the more depth is realized. The viewers eyes are first drawn to the brighter and bolder layers that seem to jump off the canvas. As the eyes move past the top layers they are slowly guided further and further back to the less pronounced neutral violet layers. When the deepest layer has been realized it is as if the viewer is peering into the inner woven tapestries that hold the painting together.
