Patricia Esposito developed an understanding of the delicate balance of mankind and the environment at an early age. Her childhood was one of contrasting realities. She grew up exploring the streets of New York City as well as hiking in the woods of New Jersey. These excursions continue today as she engages in expeditions through the Florida Everglades. A lifetime of observations form the basic concept of her latest body of work. The natural decay of objects, whether in an industrial urban area or in the wilderness, are combined with attributes of the Four Elements of Nature. All are harmoniously blended together in thought provoking art.
Ms. Esposito worked as a Photo Stylist doing props for still life, fashion/wardrobe for photographers and film sets before receiving her A.A.S. in photography at the Fashion Institute of Technology with a minor in Advertising Design. Patricia received her B.A. in Art at Montclair State University and Lorenzo Walker Technical College for welding. She has built upon her formal education by ever expanding her skills developing into a noteworthy multimedia conceptual artist.
Her current work is a juxtaposition of metal, wood, photographs and electric light that thrive together as a synergistic expression of Man's relationship with Nature. Her powerful creations question mankind's stewardship of our planet. They warn of global catastrophe by misuse of natural resources and the ultimate conflagration of war.
Ms. Esposito was one of only 50 artists chosen for The 50 Years of Photography Exhibition for the Fashion Institute of Technology's 50th anniversary celebration in New York City. Her work has been exhibited at the Westbeth Gallery NYC, Sona Gallery, Eros Gallery and Von Liebig Art Center in Naples, Florida, Sidney Berne Davis Center, Arts for ACT and Alliance for the Arts and Space 39, Ft. Myers, Florida. She is a veteran of numerous juried exhibitions in which she has taken awards. She now resides in Naples where she is well known for her dedication to conservation awareness.
