Pat Stanley's 'Convergence' was also featured on ArtSync.
CONVERGENCE is a meditation on space, time and memory. Hubble telescope images and abandoned structures are used as reference points to examine the tensions between phenomena in distant parts (and times) of the Universe to the remnants of our manufactured environment. Vivid renderings of galaxies and nebulae are interlaced with monochromatic images of deserted buildings and neglected spaces. The work is at once engaging and disturbing; immediate and evocative.
Pat Stanley studied at Montreal’s Ecole des Beaux Arts, McGill University, Concordia University, Toronto’s Three Schools of Art, Toronto School of Art, and at the Haliburton School of the Arts, and now resides in Cobourg, Ontario. A member of the Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts and the Colborne Society of Artists, Pat has held a position on the Board of the Arts Council of Northumberland since 2007. Pat has participated in numerous juried and solo shows, received an Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Grant in 2010, and has won local, national, and international awards.
