Patrick Puckett: Monsteras . June 1-23, 2019
We are excited to open our sixth solo show with local figurative painter Patrick Puckett titled Monsteras. Referring not only to the foliage depicted, Puckett’s larger than life canvases in Monsteras deploy the color red to lend his singular figures an undeniable presence. This powerful presence is further strengthened by Puckett’s confident interaction of paint application, shape, color and texture.
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.
