PATRICIA SATTERLEE grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, attended Carnegie-Mellon University and received a BFA from UC Santa Cruz. She has an MFA from American University in Washington, DC, and for the past sex years she has been making work on Grattan Street in Bushwick. Her recent work is made up of loose and playful lines, which laugh and dance with rational systems. Satterlee juggles symbols and historic markers that seem reminiscent of the clarity and simplicity found in early modernism of Kandinsky and Matisse.
Painted Drawings are rhythmic structures of sensory experience. More intuitive than intellectual, the orbits have a motion that feels both ancient and primal, immediate and futuristic. The paintings capture the spontaneous energy pursuing its course with lines suggesting the space between the things. In a confluence of swirling halos going from one object to another the flux lines make forms of their own identity. – Patricia Satterlee, 2011
The more simple the lines and forms the greater the beauty and power. – Ingres, 1808
