A lively palette and energetic brushwork are the hallmarks of Patricia Fabian's work. Scenes of simple satisfactions captivate Fabian’s creative mind, because amongst such peaceful moments is when we expose our most human essence. “There is always chaos and quiet in the application of the paint, because life is a patch quilt of both. And in all that turbulence of the world, there is that one still captured moment that tells the story of a person’s life." Fabian’s subjects will often remain distant from the viewer or even slightly mysterious in order to present them as characters placed in an unfolding sequence of events. Stylistically her creamy, impasto application of oil paint recalls the work of Pop artist Wayne Thiebaud and adds a palpable vivacity to her imagery.
Patricia Fabian has been very successful in exhibiting her work around the United States, from New York to Los Angeles, as well as selling to private collectors and institutions. Fabian holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from University of Tulsa with post-graduate studies in Virginia and New Mexico.
