Artist Statement and Bio   Patty Maher is an award winning fine art photographer and artist  based in Caledon, Ontario, Canada. The inspiration for her art comes  from an exploration of the feminine in the context of both natural and  urban settings. Working primarily through staged portraiture and  self-portraiture Maher is widely known for hiding or obscuring the faces  of her subjects o en only using only posture, gesture, symbol and colour  to convey emotion and story. Maher explores the inner worlds of her  subjects while at the same time considering notions of personal space,  boundaries of identity and the relationship of the individual to the larger  world. Her goal with each photo and series is to create pieces that disrupt  the boundaries between real life and the otherworldly; the surreal and  the commonplace. In the telling of visual stories she invites the viewer to  become a co-creator in meaning, leaving the stories open ended but  touching on basic and universal emotions.  Patty Maher was born in Toronto and completed undergraduate and  graduate degrees in English Literature at the University of Guelph. Her  work as a fine art photographer began in 2010 and since then has been  featured on book covers and recognized in numerous online and print  publications around the world including a video interview with Yahoo  Productions created for the series “The Weekly Flickr”.  Patty has also received recognition in prestigious photography contests  including the PX3 Prie de la Photography Paris, Moscow International  Foto Awards, Tokyo Foto Awards, the International Color Awards and the  International Photography Awards. Maher’s work is known  internationally and sold throughout the world.
