PATRICIA VOLK

 
 

Patricia Volk’s practice stems from a fascination with how one line or form has an effect upon another next to it. The juxtapositions of shape and colour create wonderful contradictions of power and fragility, stability and precariousness, their tentative proximities, frictions and “rubbing against each other” reflecting the relationships between human beings; the awkward but beautiful partnership between the strong and the weak, the delicate and the robust, creating sometimes a balanced structure that seems as if it might topple, but keeps standing. Just as in life.
