Description: Nighttime scenes combining cityscape with nature are scarce, but inhabitants of New York City are well aware that the moon appears as a striking, startling presence against the manmade environment. In this painting entitled "Harvest Moon", realist artist Patricia Hansen captures the indigo-blue richness of nightime in the City.|
In her early career, Patricia Hansen's cityscapes began as backgrounds in her narrative, figurative paintings. Hansen now likes to extract some element--city view, still life or figure--from a complex painting and focus on it alone.
A virtuoso painter, Patricia Hansen captures perfectly the changing lights and moods of New York City.
Originally from Georgia, Patricia Hansen lives and works in Manhattan. Hansen is represented in collections including: CIT Corporation, American Express, McGraw Hill, CocaCola, HBOCollection, Tulane University and New Orleans Museum of Art.
