Pat Devane Burns recent paintings are influenced by what she calls ‘slice of life’ venues. She says "Perhaps it simply took a lot of living to really notice the nuances of living. Not grandiose, not glorified… simple, honest. Not dark, not negative… sometimes tongue-in-cheek, always upward. And juxtapositions... organic shapes against strong geometrics, saturated color against muted neutrals, bright light against strong shadows. There is beauty in the everyday. Our ability to see it and share it forms a human connection that is, at once, timely and ageless."This work, titled "Tethered" (20" x 20" acrylic, $1,200) captures the nuances of a construction site. Pat attended Governors' Honors at Wesleyan College, entered Berry College on a full-tuition art scholarship and has studied since then under Art Werger, Scott Duce and Marlin Adams. Currently her work can be seen in Georgia at Art on the Avenue and Macon Arts in Macon, Glynn Art Gallery on St. Simons Island and Monroe County Arts in Forsyth. She is also represented in Scottsdale, AZ at Xanadu Gallery.
