Pat Gibson

ARTIST STATEMENT

I have a strong feeling that just beyond our senses there is something magical about life, something very subtle yet powerful. My work has become a search for that mysterious part of myself and my world. I made the above statement a few years ago. It continues to express my underlying purpose for making art.
