Patricia Smits, Visual artist.
(video)-Installations, (light)sculptures, mixed artworks, photographs.
Patricia Smits explores fragments of images out of our daily world in her visual work. With the fragments she develops new compositions and with these she creates space in which (other) constructions can evolve or transform. This allows her to create new environments. In these surroundings other precepts apply, this way the current precepts are tested.
Smits feels a desire for freedom and harmony regarding thoughts and actions, in which equality and consciousness are priorities. The image can stand on its own, or it can give the place in which it is situated a different meaning. Doubting existing things is a part of the content of her work; ‘nothing is the self-evident truth.’ These actions are necessary to enable us to question the structure (or hierarchy) in order to get to the complexity of it.
