At the Table - Dessert
"At the Table - Seating the Guests" 34" x 37"

Patricia UnderwoodPatricia Underwood's compositions speak to the viewer in a deeply personal yet universally accessible language of symbols and shapes, which serve as a vehicle to raise controversial and seemingly insoluble issues. Her 2002 series, "Bimbos and Goddesses", made elegant and intriguing associations between representations of the female figure in our current culture and those in prehistoric matriarchal societies to confront issues of self-esteem and abuse. In her series, "Healing Shields", each piece deals with a specific, painful issue such as domestic violence and racism, and acts as a "visual prayer" for healing.
