I Am

Very curious, easily distracted and like to experiment a lot; color and texture are some of the elements that interest me when I look at art.

As it happens with any artist my style has evolved, I am painting with more freedom than in years past, more relaxed, less pressured to do things perfectly. I am really enjoying myself and I almost define my latest work as playful.

My main influences have been Picasso, not only because of his versatility and incredible talent, but I like to study his ability to express so much with a simple line; I also enjoy Modigliani with his elongated figures full of imperfections as they exude greatness. I should mention as well that the textures and poignancy of Egon Schiele‚Äôs art sends my imagination through the right channels.                                                                                                                                                                                   Patricia Riascos
