E101 Gallery to Host “Fantastic Aspect” Exhibition by Patricia Lizon

The E101 Gallery will feature artist Patricia Lizon’s “Fantastic Aspect” exhibition of surreal abstract cartoons from January 28 to February 26. These boldly colored, limited edition archival prints bring to life "characters" who sometimes emote alone or interact with others. Each image creates a subliminal psychological space which is primal. What occurs is intuitively recognizable as universal and organic; felt in the body. The artist begins by clearing her mind and making honest automatic writings; many line drawings in quick succession, unconscious of intent. After such a session, only those marks which speak to an emotional space are retained and scanned into Photoshop where the mood is elaborated with the addition of color and textures. The viewer is invited to bring his/her life to interact with the art and come to personal conclusions regarding the primitive narrative depicted which is nebulous as the last dream which fades as one wakes. Occasionally, words are included to indicate what the "characters" say to the artist.

Patricia is a graduate of San Diego State in Painting and Printmaking and has worked as a freelance Graphic Designer. In the past, she has been in numerous group shows in San Diego and Seattle, more recently was a featured artist for Gap Toothed Madness Online Gallery and was Woman’s Caucus of the Arts San Diego first place winner of the online exhibit “Express Yourself”.

Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, February 5 from 5pm-8pm during the First Thursdays event at the E101 Gallery (818 S. Coast Hwy 101). Free light refreshments. Come one and all!
