Patti Oleon's exhibition "Transference" is about to open at Modernism gallery in San Francisco.
Patti's latest paintings are the result of travelling with a Hollywood location scout searching for evocative interiors that could serve as the basic images for her paintings. Working with photographs, Patti then edits, enhances, and at times double the images in Photoshop before bringing the image to the panels. The final paintings are an amalgam of contradictions, blurring the line between the real and the artificial, the dark and the light, and the banal and the transcendent.
The net result is this magnificent exhibition at Modernism and if you are in San Francisco, do visit it.
