Daydreams - The Art of Patty Flauto
The Art of Patty Flauto is an investigation of how the process of creating abstract art acts as a bridge between the task-oriented brain (conscious) and the imagination (sub-conscious). Visuals emerge as a result of the artist’s discovery and departure of her unique inner experience. The strong compositions, colors and shapes in this show invite the viewer to pause and interpret. Impression overshadows realism, creating a dialogue between artist and viewer. Layers of meaning allow for thought, escape and a sense of satisfaction.
All artist proceeds will be donated to Providence House, a local non-profit organization dedicated to protecting children and supporting families in crisis.

By Patty Flauto
Color is a universal language. It speaks to all of us. Color can transcend spoken language and allow us to experience emotion. Our shared love of color connects us.
It is powerful! Studies show that color is the first thing that we see when we look at something. Within 90 seconds you will respond to color and make judgment about what you see.
Color is my passion. It is also the portal into my painting process. How to start a painting? Start with color and the start will be good. Color gets me to show up no matter how loudly procrastination calls.
Color is rich language that I am still learning and hope that is always the case. To know everything about color is to be done and I don't want to be done.
