Patrick Dean Hubbell is a dynamic painter who often incorporates earth pigments and oil to create his paintings.  This painting, entitled, “Almost a Portrait No. 51”, and it is oil on panel.  It is framed in a gold frame.  Patrick says of his “Almost a Portrait” series:

The series, “Almost a Portrait”, reminiscent of using historic black and white photos of Native Americans.  In my thinking it was to create the “next great American Indian portrait”, but not quite, since not a full portrait.  It abstracts the figure so you focus on the color and jewelry, not just the person.  It allows the abstract personality to come out. “

Patrick says of his work in his artist statement:

“My work is an investigation of identity. I am drawn to the subtle questioning of this examination. I find inspiration in everything and I use various themes rooted in the correlation and the conflict of both my Native American and Contemporary mindset. I am equally interested in the abstract qualities of expression as well as representational imagery. Using nature, stories, philosophies, and abstract representations, I am able to depict this existence of identity. My work includes the use of bold and vibrant colors, combined with the integration of various elements of design, and a multitude of line quality and expressive mark making that often mimics what nature provides. These elements allow me to create my own aesthetic value in which reflect a personal experience of memory, physical, mental, and spiritual instances from life. The expressive personality of my work allows the viewer a momentary visual experience.”
