pat lemos profile

Pat Lemos is a visual artist born in Galicia, by the Spanish Atlantic ocean. She holds a BFA from the Polytechnic University of Valencia. Her nomadic spirit and big interest on cultures and social exchanges encouraged her to fulfil residencies in the Sahara Desert, Iceland, France or India.

Exploring the depths of the subconscious and digging into self-awareness is how Pat Lemos fundamentally approaches to art. She believes that the most intimate is the most universal, therefore, her personal perception shape her genuine way of reaching creation. There are no limits for the expression regarding mediums –nor dimensions–, being painting, collage or photography generally used. Powerful, stunning colours, deep blacks and the presence of exuberant horizons and transparent bodies offer a mysterious painted imagery. Constantly merging abstraction and figurative indistinctively, she invites the spectator to a transforming journey into the shadows towards the light. Interested in art as an open, alive project, she always conveys a sense of pureness, presenting life being what it is.
