Patricia Van Dalen, Visual Arts
A Miami-based visual artist with a career that spans over thirty-five years, Patricia Van Dalen has an extensive body of work on canvas and on paper, and has colloborated with architects to produce multiple site-specific installations. The use of media in her work ranges from painting, graphics, collage, prints, drawings, to, more recently, assemblage, photography, and the design of stained glass, tapestries, and carpets. Her work explores the poetics of structures through fragmentation as it affects form, line, surface, space, and color.
