Patricia Van Dalen is a Venezuelan-born, Miami-based artist with an extensive career that spans over thirty-five years. Van Dalen transforms spaces and surfaces through color-based structures that, immersed in the language of abstraction, enjoy a grammar of their own. The use of media in her work ranges from painting, collage, drawing, and, more recently, assemblage, photography and video, to site-specific installations, and the design of works incorporated into architectural spaces, including murals, stained-glass windows, and rugs, among others. Van Dalen is the creator of the monumental-scale public art Jardín Lumínico located in Caracas.
