“Ordinary Lives,” an exhibition of works by New York-based artist Patty Horing (b. 1965, Chicago, Illinois) started on February 23 and will run through March 25, 2017 at Anna Zorina Gallery, New York.
The show features works that explore the narrative and psychological nature of portraiture as a genre. Horing’s subjects are her friends and family. The paintings reveal a certain level of vulnerability which stems from her emotional attachment, specific to each relationship. This inadvertently fosters a similar intimate connection for the viewer. This knowledge makes the artist’s subjects anything but ordinary. This is Patty Horing’s debut solo exhibition.
