Throughout her life, Patricia David has admired brave determined and resilient women in search of their identity. These unknown women, forgotten, ignored by history, by society, motivates her to describe and bring out their hidden faces, their struggles in life.
Her artistic practice revolves around the concepts of light and transparency. She uses a non-traditional way with glass to create mosaics which become illuminated creations. Sort of like the artist Eric Wesselow (1911-1998), glass maker and aquarellist, she creates with the help of fine wedges of glass, superposition and textures which captivate the light and plays with the translucent glass in order to better reveal the image. Thus, making her creations mixed with light.
Patricia David is from Argentina. She left her country because of the difficult political situation during the 1980s and established herself in Montreal. She studied at “UQÀM” University of Quebec in Montreal in Social Sciences as well as in Visual Arts. After working in the field of jewellery, she gave herself a new challenge: mosaic, a medium which enables her to express her creativity and learn how to play with light. Since then, she has not stopped creating original and audacious pieces inspired by different themes which are close to her heart, namely women and their socio-political situation as well as the environment and childlike creativity.
