The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public. Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art. 2. Their artist biography. 3. Their artist statement. These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. This was the 12th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.
Below is Patti’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 of her images. We hope that you will take the time to read Patti’s information and to take a look at her beautiful artwork.
Patti Bradeis is an award winning artist born in Philadelphia, PA and currently living in New Jersey. She draws her photorealistic portraits with graphite, carbon and charcoal. Her techniques have evolved from studying the works of artists she admires and experimenting with various tools to achieve her desired effect. She uses photographs as her references.
Quoting Renée Phillips, Director and Curator of Manhattan Arts International, “She not only achieves an incredible likeness to her subjects, she infuses her drawings with enormous love for humanity and her drawings evoke a powerful visceral effect on viewers. She reveals truths about many positive aspects of the human experience, particularly love, hope and unity that leap into our hearts.”
I'm of the mind to search for treasured trinkets in moments that appear to be mundane. For my portraits the subjects I choose to draw cultivate joy, comfort, hope and/or encouragement in my spirit which hopefully reaches the viewers heartstrings as well. I prefer to draw children in all their transparencies, vulnerabilities and innocence because, i believe, in our core we still relate to those spontaneous, raw emotions regardless of the many hats we wear as adults.
