Pat Harvey is a watercolourist specialising in urban, French and floral subjects. She is also a writer on art and a television researcher. Though following with interest the current debates within the art world, like the artists she admires (Eric Ravilious, Mary Potter, Winifred Nicholson, Mary Fedden, Paul Nash) she finds traditional media her natural channel of expression. Her paintings of carnations in tin cans, a butterfly mural in Camberwell, bicycles chained to a Metro station entrance and lovers in a Paris park have the understated poetry of French cinema. Representational, but with a hint of surrealism, they are small explosions of colour and light.
