Bushland Series | Patrick Treacy

April 1 - April 13

Free

Artist Statement: The pieces in my Bushland series are what I consider fictive topothesias, descriptions of imagined or non-existent places. I have painted them on heavily encrusted, small wooden palettes. I scrape these palettes, then paint on them. My scraping results in randomly colored, often highly textured backgrounds: appropriate metaphors for the seeming chaos and incomprehensibility of the world. It is a process that links me to my early experiences of nature. It returns me to all that beautiful, overwhelming and complex glory. A friend recently described my small landscapes as “organic anarchy”. His phrase accurately describes my attempts to find forms in the seeming chaos of the scraped palettes, my way of entering a sense of nature with amazement and surprise.

Tuesday to Saturday, 11 am to 5 pm

*First Friday, April 1, 11 am to 8 pm – Meet the Artist hours: 2-5 pm; First Friday, 5-8 pm
