PATRICIA LARSEN



Many who experience a painting of Patricia Larsen think it’s the work of a Zen monk, someone who’s mastered the elements of purity - but it’s Larsen’s memories of playing in Albertan prairie fields that melt into her images.

MARINA DUNBAR



“The minimal and reductive photographs conveyed an intrinsic beauty. Taking from their simplicity, I approach my paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color and letting the interaction of hues establish a feeling of depth and dynamic motion within each piece.”

ABOUT HOLLY ADDI


Salt Lake City-based painter, Holly Addi sees beauty in the imperfect. Her work is based on life’s imperfections and how it relates back to beauty and the magical phenomenon how it all works together. “My art style is ‘composition of imperfectionism’ and how to embrace the wonder, rather than question it; the good, the bad, the evil, the weeds, the flowers, all of it. And at the end, you look at it, and see beauty through it all,” she explains.

Addi’s works examine energy, space, and landscape through tempered abstraction. By applying abstraction, she constructs intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. Often about her audience’s contact with architecture and basic living elements; energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways. By not referencing specific recognizable forms, Addi deconstructs in order to shift meaning and create open interpretation for the viewer.
