Artist Profile

Patricia Hines

Patricia Hines has the curiosity to explore new ideas and experiment which advances her long standing art practice to other dimensions. She successfully combines her skills as a contemporary artist, print maker and ceramicist  to produce beautiful mixed media artworks which clearly demonstrate her strong design sense. 

Due to this rich base of skills, (and there are many layers to her works) she challenges herself to make the transition from design, used in a functional way, to a purer form of art. She shows the beneficial freedom of ageing, with decades of skills in her bag and with nothing to lose by experimenting with them all –    and this experimentation has decades of discipline  

Her works are also coupled with her sensibility to her natural surroundings; and she is especially inspired by the northern Jarrah Forest near her home in Dwellingup.

This work is related to the artist’s love of birds and concerns for their future. The wings from a 28 Parrot
were found by the roadside. They are a remnant or fleeting impression of what is left.

They express not only sadness but beauty and celebrate the swiftness
and efficiency they once had. The router cut words use the word TYPOGRAPHY. All early writing or mark making was done in clay tablets and this word expresses our modern use of such marks in its
many forms and variations.
