“Everything is connected, and balance is key. I create to express the voice of nature and challenge the viewer's perception of reality.”

Patricia Daher’s work explores the connectivity between the state of the environment, and emotional states. The connection of everything, and the necessity of caring for the environment voiced throughout her eclectic collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, installations, and social performances. Daher’s works are an exploration of color combinations and forms that manifest unseen worlds and concepts felt through mental images and empathy. Her vibrant palette and use of organic forms and repetition mimic the vibrancy and worlds, micro and macro,  found in nature. With a background in Mathematics, she approaches the art-making process from the perspective of a scientist; embracing the freedom to experiment with new mediums and  perfect techniques.. Through creating connections, she explores new concepts and patterns, and finds joy in making works that engage the audience, encourage dialogue, and invite a change in perspective.
