Patricia, a sensitive artist, brings to her canvas the immortal effeminate woman, combining her tender touch and simplicity with magic moments of beauty in delicate domain. She invites us to share the public intimacy of an informal French Cafe and the euphoric mystery of a woman’s room. The images, which she presents, are anonymous and therefore transcend all specific consideration of time or place, which places her work in the universal setting and justifies her worldwide success.
Patricia Govezensky was born in Tel Aviv in 1961 and was raised in Jaffa, a picturesque quarter known for being the site of the oldest port in the world. Patricia was educated and raised in Israel where she studied art. At a young age, she enrolled in courses sponsored by the Tel Aviv Museum where she mastered such arts as lithography, engraving, photography and sculpture. She graduated with distinction in her art studies at the Avni Institute and the Art Academy at Ramat Hasharon. These two institutes are of the most highly regarded and well-known art academies in Israel.
"For me painting is a means through which I find expression of life's joy and fulfillment, and I believe art, more than merely being a means of expression itself, also serves as a medium to help us to make peace with our lives through positive and enthusiastic sentiments and regard for the brighter aspects of our existence, escaping form protest, cynicism and selfishness." - Patricia
