Patrick Puckett: Spring and All . May 1-29, 2021
Puckett's paintings are known for their bold colors and strong leisurely figures, executed with confident interaction between paint application, shape, color and texture. In this new body of work, pattern becomes a focus just as important and can often be found in the foliage, the interior and the subjects’ dress. This use of pattern competes for attention and adds an active element to the otherwise passive pose of the sitter- emmenating a sense of energy and almost an urgency to postures of leisure.
Born in 1979, Puckett grew up in a log cabin in central Mississippi. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2002. Puckett currently lives and works in Austin, Texas.
