Patti Agapi is a Canadian abstract mixed media artist. Working with paint and collage elements she creates deeply layered and textured mixed media abstract art. She is self-taught and ever-evolving in her artistic journey and has exhibited and worked in the Orillia Arts community since 2007.
Formerly a member of the downtown Orillia Art Co-operative Peter Street Fine Arts, she now operates her own studio and gallery space (in partnership) called Suite 204 Studio & Gallery in downtown Orillia. Suite 204 is home to her art studio (Mad with Rapture Studio).
Patti is also active on social media, sharing and engaging in the art world via her active social media accounts. Her love of social media also transfers to her marketing business - Creative Reach Social Media Marketing.
My work is abstract in nature, presenting random, yet intuitively balanced shapes and forms. Each piece is a process of building up, covering up, fermenting and finally revealing. With the use of text and found phrases in my work, I strive to invoke thought and rumination within the viewer.
A love for the process drives my work: the physical application and layering of mixed media materials (acrylic paint, paper, book pages, metal) is my passion. Themes explored in my artistic practice are questions of memory, shadow and transformation.
