Patricia Oji

San Rafael, CA

Patricia Oji is a San Francisco Bay Area artist who explores familiar subjects in a contemporary style. Her work asks viewers to stop in their tracks, take a deep breath, and appreciate the life in the figures and objects that surround us. Many of her recent works show that what goes on in the shadows is just as important as what shines in the light. The artist is inspired by California painter Carol Peek’s use of light, Davis Perkin’s ability to capture the spirit of what he portrays, and Quang Ho’s powerful vision, which helps her to see the world so that she can paint it. In 2017 Patricia was honored with her first solo exhibition, at Dominican University in San Rafael, CA.
