ABOUT 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. “Beauty is in the juxtaposition of things, its energies working together in harmony and disharmony. Sometimes beauty is in the resistance and the tension, and sometimes it’s in complete surrender.”
