Camille Patha

Throughout her six-decade career, Camille Patha has always gravitated toward intense, eye-catching color. In the 1960s, she began painting in the gestural, nonrepresentational style popularized by abstract expressionists. However, she has remained independent of any particular artistic school, oscillating between the figurative and the abstract, and experimenting with different themes and techniques. Patha emphasizes the role of emotional intimacy in her work, stating that each piece is a “focus of light through [her] inner persona.”
