Patti Lawrence of Kingsport, TN created â€œBalanceâ€ Patti has an ability to visualize, three-dimensionally, the form of music, emotion and life itself, with color, shape and texture.
By juxtaposing opposing materials, she creates balance and tension between them through the dynamic interaction of positive and negative space.
Sometimes we think of things being balanced if they are symmetrical. Symmetry has the same image on one side as the other.
Think of a valentine out of paper. You draw half of the heart on the fold and when you open a Valentine Heart. That is symmetry.
This piece is not symmetric but the artist balances the materials to create a unified whole.
