Marion Patterson:Grain of Sand Photography
One time when I was despair because nobody was buying my work and I was broke, I phoned Minor White. He said,"What's wrong?" I said, "I'm tried of doing work that nobody looks at and nobody wants. I just wait to quit all this. "He said, "If one person is inspired by seeing something you have done you must keep working. Now forget about yourself. Get to Work. Take chances."
Marion Patterson's photography are indeed inspiring and invite reflection, emotions, peace. They provide a quiet meditation on the beauty of natural environment in a manner that reflects the author's lifelong ties to the West Coast school of photography, deeply influenced by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams.
"For me painting is gesture with the brush, action, motion, like drawing, but more physical and concrete. Superimposed gestures, strokes and stains coalesce into a field, generating a space. The composition, the subject matter, the paint are one. The action is the painting. The action has begun elsewhere. It crosses the canvas, and is carried by its momentum out beyond the rectangle."
As Boston Globe art critic Cate McQuaid describes Bolsey’s work, “These paintings are grand painterly abstractions that use recognizable shapes to explore the notion of space and the phantasm of light.” *
