Photorealist painter Patricia Whitty not only captured the images of still-life objects but her rendering lent a luminous essence to the subjects. D. Eric Bookhardt, art critic for New Orleans’ Gambit, wrote of the artist’s paintings, “Whitty presents the dichotomy between art’s attempts to create beauty and nature’s inherent aptitude for loveliness. Her ability to capture both extremes adds a deeper dimension to her work.”
