“Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible.” Paul Klee
Patricia Thompson’s production is mainly within urban and architectural photography. Through a shift in perspective and rigorous composition, these identifiable mundane objects – façades, storefronts, garage doors and air conditioners – assume other visual possibilities. The photographed figurative elements of daily life are transfigured to assume a dimension often totally abstract. To make visible a dimension of reality that doesn’t necessarily correspond to its optic dimension, but to what lies beyond it. Therefore, it is not simply about capturing the reality of cities, but reconfiguring visual arrangements to change the concreteness of reality into ambiguity.
