the heART of Port Colborne

Patti Harris

“I apply materials somewhat ambiguous in meaning, but arranged in a well-designed manner. For me, it is all about the visual impact. The objects I choose often don’t routinely ‘go together;’ the resulting work necessitates thought on the viewer’s part. Hidden meanings, humorous twists, irony and surreal elements embody many pieces.”

“My art clearly may mean one thing to one person and possibly something different to another. Each of us has a unique set of experiences that inhabit our perceptions and cause us to react one way or another to what we see. My goal is that my art will strike at that perception and create a new way of looking at the relationship between the parts and the new emerging dynamic, keeping in mind that others’ interpretations are often different than mine, as their reality is also different from mine.”
