Pat Shenstone

Festival: 2017

Some figures in my work are concealed or partly hidden behind masks, others appear to be walking out of the canvas. They seem to be engaged in the same activity and yet they are also quite independent.
My present concerns are with the roles we play in private and in public, how we mask our thoughts and emotions, how we have a public and a private face; we play a part, and the roles that we play change according to the company we keep.
The paintings present a humorous exterior whilst hinting at quite another darker truth behind their fa├žade.
