Patrice Sullivan’s work is about memory and family. Although Sullivan works from photographs, the paintings are not photorealism. The paint itself, with its restive and gestural surfaces, embodies the memory with which she sees the past. And the past is her family, is sibling rivalry, marital conflicts, divorce and adversity, and their effects.
