A Matter of Circumstances (Gallery 4)

back to current exhibition

For her first solo show with the gallery, St. Louis-based artist Patricia Clark presents an exhibition of recent paintings titled A Matter of Circumstances. This series of paintings and drawings done from 2015 to 2018 are metaphoric and figurative gestures of freeing oneself from the restrictions and burdens of the constant struggles African American women must face in their daily lives. The wrapped figures are a metaphor for events and circumstances in our lives that suppress and stop us from achieving our true potential. These obstacles can also be inner fears and doubts about our abilities to free ourselves from oppressive situations. We must continue to encourage one another to make positive changes in our lives and the lives of those around us.
