PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

“[…] what is important to him is allowing form to arise and to disappear, to emerge and to subside […]”
Max Raphael’s observations about Goya’s and Frans Hals’s painting style also applies to Pat Rosenmeier: painting is a constant modelling with colour for all of them.
Rosenmeier uses very moist acrylic paint; the canvases are placed on the floor and the picture is just a short distance away. These are the circumstances in which she makes decisions: to stop or to continue painting. Everything looks different when the paint has dried. Rosenmeier paints in the no-man’s land of invisibility, as it were, in which the degree of nuances increases and visibility decreases with every layer.
