Reflecting on issues of the day, Patrick explores themes of nature vs. industry and how they can coexist or clash. The images are all designed from photographs Patrick has taken. The images of buildings and cityscapes, as well as many trees are from Los Angeles while animal and farm photos are for the most part taken around his hometown in upstate NY. They are not only a juxtaposition of nature and industry, but also a combination of imagery from his two homes - one rural one urban. Patrick manipulates photographs in photoshop and then prints the images on a large blue print printer, layering images on wood that he has found in the streets of Los Angeles. He adds a variety of elements, including paint, hardware and segments taken from books he has found. A native of Kinderhook, NY, Patrick is a freelance designer and artist now living in Los Angeles. He received his BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2000.
