Patti Friday:   Artist Statement

My works of art are visual records of the adventures that capture my daydreams and personal landscapes. I explore my surroundings with a candid, cinematic and emotional approach. I live life and photograph it. Documenting the present that may hold a code to the past and predictions for the future in one sliver of time. The photographic, abstract and folkloric storyboards coloured in my mind are filled with questions about sensuality, nature and the cultural mosaic of Canada. I want the viewer to experience unexpected picturesque chapters of imagined narratives with a sense of disorientation and ambiguity. Everything is interesting to me. That’s what I'm documenting and archiving.
