* Critics have written that Pat Goslee “is seen as a sort of punk Georgia O'Keefe”1 and her painting is “emotion as epistemology.” 2   that “neatly evokes sensuous flesh and brutally bared meat a la Francis Bacon” 3 and “induce[s] the viewer to search out correspondences between words and the brushy, abstract allusions offered as their equivalents”. 4
