Patricia Van Dalen (born Venezuela, 1955) is a visual artist living and working in Miami. Her body of work covers different realms of creation, including painting, collage, installations, works integrated into architecture, murals, tapestries, stained glass windows, as well as several public artworks located in Venezuela, such as the urban scale mural Jardin Lumínico in Caracas. In 2003, the Art in Fairchild program, held at the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Miami, began with her large-scale installation Luminous Gardens. Currently, she is interested in linking her artistic practice with those aspects of reality that have been altered by migration, updating the purpose and conceptualization of her work from this new state of persistent transience.
