When creating her contemporary oil portraits, Patricia O’Brien paints a crowd, one person at a time. She decodes the messages we communicate about mood and feelings by studying facial structures, then recreates those messages in paint with a measure of loose brushstrokes and unexpected bits of color. The paintings are on the verge of a narrative, revealing pieces of a story through expressive eyes, but leaving that story for the viewer to decide.
