Patricia McParlin

Elected a member of the RCA in 2017

I am primarily a painter, but have also worked as a musician, writer and theatre practitioner. I partly see my art as a form of visual poetic, or static music….the impulse to transform…to harmonise discords…walking the line in-between beauty and brutality…the bitter sweet. My work has a cross-disciplinary influence, encompassing film, installation, sculpture and performance art. I have exhibited widely and my work has been purchased by corporate and individual collectors, both nationally and internationally.
