Creative angst, 2011

Patricia Harry is an abstract artist whose astoundingly evocative work has the power and energy of a much younger artist. A long time teacher at the Canberra Art School, she is now a full-time painter following her own idiosyncratic interest in colour, paint and gesture. I love this image because it captures the angst and emotional trauma that goes into producing one of her paintings.
