People who have saved this event:


Anna Zorina Gallery is pleased to present Patty Horing in her debut solo exhibition, Ordinary Lives, featuring works that explore the narrative and psychological nature of portraiture.


The paintings depict the artist’s friends and family. Her emotional attachment specific to each relationship allows for layers of vulnerability to be revealed, fostering a similarly intimate connection for the viewer. Horing includes distinguishing attributes both consciously and subconsciously. This resulting depth of knowledge renders Patty’s subjects as anything but ordinary.

Horing’s style is characterized by a confident and fluid handling of paint that combines close attention to detail with expressionist mark making. Her lush sweeping brushstrokescontribute adynamic flow to the imagery. This sense of movement elevates the feeling of transience as if the moment is about to unfold into further action.

The thick bands of color are swiftly applied in a way that exalts any imperfections and further humanizes the figures. She employs a vivid palette to imbue the figures with vivacious energy and to further exemplify the richly complex qualities of her sitters.
