"My paintings are states of mind rather than statements of the world; they are my attempt to disclose a dimension of the soul, an orientation of the human heart."
- Patrick Connors
A renaissance man, Connors used all the tools at his disposal as a student of art history - light, perspective, and perception - to meet this demand. His efforts yielded colorful and luminous daydreams which beckon attention and appreciation. His painted musings reveal a painter enamored with his surroundings and yet willing to offer his own fascinations and artistic passions.
