Joe Patrick and the Architecture of Impermanence
Joe Patrick’s paintings of the ramshackle constructions found in the Oaxaca, Mexico marketplaces depict structures that exude a sense of the temporary, yet exist to cover and protect the goods and humans below. His drawings are portraits of friends and colleagues and observe a moment in time, which are also temporary, to be replaced by the next emotion and moment.
While very different in their execution, both his paintings and drawings examine a transient sense of impermanence. Join the artist for a gallery walk where he will discuss the impermanence and the parallels found in his work on display in the Brunnier Art Museum.
