Northumberland artist Pat Stanley’s work is a visual dialogue about the tensions generated by the interaction of man-made and natural landscapes. It explores primal issues about the environment, the Universe and our place in it.
From concrete structures in Toronto’s landscape transformed by future environmental impact, her work has evolved to include phenomena in distant parts (and times) of the Universe interacting with built structures from our daily lives. Abandoned and destroyed homes and residences, factories, expressways and drive-in theatres exist in a shared virtual space with nebulae and galaxies.
Her body of work is a meditation on space, time and memory.
