Patrice Robinson (b. Queens, NY) is best known for her intense, realistic portrait paintings created by using oil on wood panels. She also continues to gain inspiration from her personal experiences. The themes that interest Patrice are duality and the idea that what can be revealed in the light can also be revealed in the dark. Her paintings focus on the complex psyche of a person. The anonymity and distance that surround some people strongly interests Patrice. She has exhibited at Sally Centigrade and Smack Mellon Galleries. Patrice’s work has been featured in both the Matador Review and PoetsArtists Magazine. She currently lives and works in NYC.
