Patricia Steele Raible Artist Bio:
I am a contemporary abstract artist working primarily in mixed media. My first introduction to art was an elective course in college where I immediately became entranced. Though I ultimately finished two writing degrees, I continued to take classes while pursuing a career and raising a family. Then a retrospective of the late collage artist Romare Bearden ignited my passion once again. Initially, I worked on paper, but now I work primarily on deep wood panels (cradles), developing both visual and tactile texture that is multi-layered and fragmented—layers that make connections and ultimately, ”give the final piece of art its voice.” Words and symbols continue to be important and are often found on both the tops and sides of my cradles either written directly onto the surface or in the form of pages torn from books. An alumni of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, NC, my work has been collected and exhibited throughout the South, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions.
