Inspiration: Patricia Chidlaw and Ashley Hennefer
In this week's Reno News and Review, my favorite weekly in my new hometown Reno, I came across this excellent article about photorealist painter Patricia Chidlaw by the enterprising and always fun to read award-winning Ashley Hennefer.
Some of Chidlaw's most recent work is on display at the Nevada Museum of Art. A brilliant quote by an NMA rep finishes off the article.
"Her paintings provoke mystery in their familiarity. The viewer gets the feeling she should know what happened in this place, but is not sure why. Looking at them feels like a deja vu."
