Artist Reception: Saturday, February 26, 2022

Out of Season is a solo exhibition of paintings by DC based artist Pat Goslee. For Pat, painting is a way to deal with the chaos of the world. She creates lush layers of patterns that speak to nature and the effects of global warming. Bits of figurative elements can often be seen that are in a state of entropic evolution; that is, they are falling apart while attempting to reorganize. In this chaotic time of death, grief and change, she paints topographies inhabited in our energetic bodies.
The artist writes: “Painting, an act that lies between a noun and a verb, is a silent form of communication. It is an arena of dreams with the power to create alternatives to the destructive currents of public discourse. These paintings are visual barometers, registering what might be called evolutionary entropy. They reference spiritual mythologies, the mysteries of Mother Nature and the blooming of hope out of season.”
The exhibition includes acrylic paintings that range from 8 x10 inches to 48 x 48 inches. Although they hint to the pleasure of an upcoming spring, they are layered with inspiration and meaning.
