Oil Paintings by Patty Keville Fogle

July 20 – September 7, 2024

 

Patty Keville Fogle grew up west of Boston and later traveled to Europe, East-Africa and then to the outer ridges of western Ireland, which continues to influence her artwork. She received a thorough grounding in Classical Painting, Drawing and Art History from Master Artists and joined Washington Art Association Faculty in 2005. Patty has taught art and has had exhibitions and ongoing commissions all over Connecticut as well as in Ireland.

Patty is always in search of the persistent, irreducible singularity of things – the essence of a split second of light that illuminates a space, a form – and then she catches it before it is gone. She tracks down these moments often a long way from home in remote locations where unpredictable weather takes her in as it sweeps over barren untamed ground and water. These undisturbed places dissolve time and feel like a reunion with her inherited past.

Clouds are her initial guides with their limitless shapes in constant motion as they transform the land and water below.

“Taking my weight from the ground – falling deep in the sky – slipping into the unknown.”  – Peter Gabriel

Back in the studio those exterior places move to more personal territory, morphing into an emotional ride through charcoal on paper. Memory and mood combine through fast application of paint in the final work, surprising her by the new life it takes on.

“It should be land, rock, water and sky but it is paint, yet behaves like weather … My paintings reflect a full circle from Connecticut to Wyoming, over to Scotland and Ireland, back through the outer edges of Martha’s Vineyard to the high fields of Roxbury.”
