The Oil Paintings of Patricia Rodriquez and Dr. Regina Ruiz
August 3-27, 2015 • 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Artists Reception • 7-9 p.m. August 13, 2015
“Natura” is the exploration of nature as envisioned by artists Patricia Rodriquez and Dr. Regina Ruiz through oil paint and brush on canvas. Each artist depicts the natural beauty around them as individual as they are themselves.
Ms. Rodriquez, an Oak Cliff native is a freelance painter and muralist who draws her inspiration from nature with an approach both subconscious and organic. She states that “this body of work is an exploration of Nature as a form of energy. Chaos and elegance coexist as these surreal plant forms take on different arrangements to express the pure energy of life. The work is driven by color and movement. Inspired by Nature and spontaneity and never sketched before hand to embed each piece with fresh energy. www.tigerbeearts.com
Always interested in flowers and fruits, Dr. Ruiz uses them to explore shape and texture, sometimes using the “smallest section of something, anything, a flower, a vegetable, a fruit and then I make it bigger to the point of abstraction not attempting to paint in a realistic style….If I have made a picture and I am happy with it, hopefully it can speak for itself. Each person takes something a little different from the same picture.”
An Evening with the Artists, a reception showcasing Dr. Ruiz and Ms. Rodriguez will be from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, August 13 at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Parkway, Keller TX 76248. The event is free and suitable for all ages. Enjoy refreshments while conversing with the artists and other art enthusiasts.
