Wonder East of Ordinary

Art East of Ordinary is a creative outpost where the unexpected dwells.

Tour Maine artist, Patricia Duffy’s, uncommon artifacts composed from castoffs, relics and remnants of common life.

Each glass piece is presented in-the-round, viewed as a continuous panorama or narrative.

Incongruous materials are orchestrated into harmony through the use of color, shapes and textures, creating a flow that draws the viewer around and through the structure.

Often scenes are discernible: fractured land forms, air-borne water bodies, buried skies, uninhabitable structures and improbable machinery. 

Each piece is a topsy-turvy, unhinged and surreal world that confounds and challenges ordinary perception.
