Patricia's show opened on April 8, 2011. "The tree, once the incidental in the background of her paintings, is now the portrait itself, the figure about to leap off the canvas, the one that engages our attention. Her dramatic perspective is from the ground up and she captures the essential point where trunk meets branches, neither showing the tree neither attached to the ground nor reaching an end point in the sky. Burson's trees exist free in space and yet are rooted stolid sentries, outsized in dimension and power. Burson paints them again and again, a tribe of giants, spirits among us to be revered." – Ruth Rosner
