Patricia Leite - 2017


Navigating various references, Patricia Leite gives an outlet to her memories and latent affections through an extremely peculiar pictorial exercise. Bucolic scenes from trips or images extracted from videos that caught her attention trigger a process towards paintings that come into existence in a rare combination between seriousness and leniency.
Vibrating between abstraction and figuration, her artworks deal with the movement from a solid state to an inconstant moment.
From striking colours such as avocado green and solid tones of blue, to graphic frugality, the artist chooses her building blocks to portray the world in different levels of intensity.

Patricia Leite (Belo Horizonte, 1955) lives and works in Belo Horizonte.
Her works has been included in institutional group exhibitions such as Mínimo, múltiplo, comum, Estação Pinacoteca, São Paulo (2018); Aprendendo Com Dorival Caymmi – Civilização Praieira, Instituto Tomie Ohtake, São Paulo (2016); The Circus as a Parallel Universe, Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2013); Outra Praia, Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte (2005).
