This week we welcome Patricia Bellan-Gillen to STUDIO Visits!
Writer, Paul Krainak describes Bellan-Gillen’s work as, “Formalist canon meets zoological illustration, penetrated by medieval spiritualism and glossed with personal dream imagery.”

Her most recent body of work continues to build on the use of imagery that honors and questions our stories, suggests a narrative and attempts to engage the viewer’s associative responses: imagery that is at once forgotten but familiar.  The work also celebrates a return to drawing—the sheer love of the fundamental act of working with the most basic of materials.

Bellan-Gillen’s paintings, prints and drawings have been the focus of over 35 solo exhibitions across the U. S., including venues in Washington DC, Chautauqua, NY, Las Cruces, NM, Albany, NY, Bloomington, IL and Portland, OR. Her work has been included in numerous group shows including: Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY, Chelsea Museum of Art, New York, NY, Frans Masreel Centrum, Belgium, and the Tacoma Museum of Art, Tacoma, WA.
