Patricia Branstead

Patricia Branstead received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute  in printmaking where she was also working at Crown Point Press as an  apprentice and became a Master Printer. She then moved to NYC and  started her own studio, Aeropress, working with many well known artists.  Her reputation grew and she continued for the next 17 years. Then  moving to Steamboat Springs, Colorado she helped found another studio,  Riverhouse Editions as Director and Master Printer. She later moved to  Denver and recently to Los Angeles where she is happily living at the  Brewery. 

At a certain point many years ago, she knew it was time to stop and begin  a new chapter doing her own art. This has taken her in many directions,  from photography, papermaking, painting on paper and then to monotype  printing on Asian papers. Her interest has alway been about light and  transparency; patterns and reflections of nature. 

As her work evolved she began to realize that she was searching for a  way to express the underlying depth of thought and spiritually as we find it  in everyplace we look. A key to getting beneath the surface of life.  Watching as life flows and reveals itself to us subtly like a whisper or a  current trying to give us all the information we want if we will sit and pay  attention, by letting it rise like a koan. Her patterns become waves, and  reflections. Some soft and others more robust expressions.  

Her work takes the form of light by creating lamps, wall painting and  hangings on Asian paper. She has shown this work in many places in Colorado and New York and plans to continue here in California.
