Virginia Paquette

In my art I have sought to depict motion, memory and contradiction. I am drawn to the sense of objects and space on the move, of color and shapes and lines in flux. And sometimes the connection between the shape of nature and the shape of the human gesture is an inspiration: The similarity of the tendril, the curve of the hip, the cascade, the vocabulary of posture. I often work with images of movement, from natural forms and phenomena: rain, floods, “deluge,” the vortex and spill of moving water in defined spaces, whirlpools. The “memory” is transplanting visual cues from one place/time to another, perhaps fragments of classical figures or architecture – or “time fragments” from my own history.
