Patricia Thomas joined the second installment of our artist residency program this spring. Patricia’s work “explores the imagery of blackface” through beautifully vibrant and biographical paintings. In our interview with Patricia, she discusses her focus on the community members that Jasper Studios neighbors, who would inspire the body of work she has produced during her time with us.
This spring we welcomed Patricia Swanson to our Artist in Residency program. Patricia is a photographer whose work goes beyond simple displays of imagery by creating an immersive, often mixed media experience. As her residency winds down, we are excited to share what inspires her and what she has been working on during her time with us.
We are excited to welcome our newest artists in residence to the Jasper Studios Artist Residency Program, Patricia Swanson and Patricia Thomas! Every three months, artists in Philadelphia are welcomed to apply to the artist residency program. Artists that are chosen will receive a work studio space among an existing community of over 50 artists and entrepreneurs.
