Patricia Ziad – Wales

As a graduate in Documentary Photography my work explores the boundaries and the relationship between art and photography. My interests relate to industrial decline and social change and I use this as a source of inspiration for making abstract images.

The abstract work is informed by my photographic practice which familiarises me with subject, colour and form, which I abstract using ink and a modified process of Cliché Verre.

The focus of my M.A. project was a visual exploration of the interiors of Non conformist chapels in Powys and East Carmarthenshire. The images relate to time, memory, loss and absence.

The context of the project was the relation of non-conformism to the history, politics and culture of Welsh communities, a background of religious change, industrial revolution, social unrest, political activity and cultural practices many of which were nurtured by the ethos of non-conformist values.

My most recent project was a commission for the Glynn Vivian Gallery Swansea, this was the response of nine women artists to the archives of the Dilwyn Llewelyn family, Penllegare, Swansea. The exhibition is The Moon and a Smile, 4 March-23 April 2017.
