Pat Brennan, Scupltor Extroadinaire!
Pat descibes herself as an explorer of both
the "outer and inner" portrait of people, as well as the
multiple forces that put the human spirit together. As
a artist she has exhibited her paintings, sculptures and
mixed media installations both locally and internationally.
In the late seventies and early eighties,
she experimented with photo silkscreen on porcelain as
well as clay-print painting on canvas. She developed some
minatures after doing some work with the former clown
master, Richard Pochinko at the Theatre Resource Centre
Patricia has concentrated the last few
years on a sculpture installation called Guardians and
Arkangels From Earth, which has been portraits of friends
and aquaintances, each expressed with a mythological theme.
Della, the author or Dodoland was sculpted as one of the
angels. Many of the scuptures are of professional dancers.
The project was given a grant to tour Russia in 1991.
Recently in Algoma, Ontario, Canada the
sculptures were the inpiration for a interdisciplinary
installation with a sculpture exhibition and a dance production
integrating western, native and dance traditions with
the native part being danced by a First Nations dance
group called WA WA Taye Mee Win- Dancing Northern Lights.
