oil on canvas
66 x 50 inches

Shapes jostle and shove against each other in this carefully balanced composition by Patricia Treib. The artist works through each composition deliberately, using a pared down set of elements that she repeats and modifies on paper before laying paint to canvas. Once finalized, she uses thin washes of oil paint to quickly lay out the shapes, resulting in a loose, spontaneous, and sensuous surface. Treib’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions at venues in Mexico, the US, and Europe. She has participated in residencies at the Dora Maar House and The MacDowell Colony.
