"Skater" by Patricia Hansen combines the artist's skill in painting people with her constant exploration of foreign cultures as sources of inspiration. Indian miniatures in the Huntington Library prompted Hansen to make small panel paintings that have a presence as paintings and also as art objects. Hansen is a virtuoso painter who captures the energy and personality of her subject perfectly.|
"San Francisco Chronicle" art critic Kenneth Baker wrote: "What makes Patricia Hansen a realist, more than just a fine representational painter, is that her paintings are a lesson in seeing."
Patricia Hansen is represented in collections including: New Orleans Museum of Art, City of Atlanta, Coca-Cola, HBO and McGraw Hill. To learn more about this artist and her prices for commissioned portraits, visit Patricia Hansen's SoHo studio.
