Patrick Brennan '98 - In Collaboration with Halsey McKay Gallery

Patrick Brennan, AU class of 1998, displays a series of charismatic pictures that operate just outside the notion of painting's convention and expectations. Layering paint alongside everyday objects such as popsicle sticks, discarded fabrics, scraps from his studio floor and detritus from the workplace, the artist's works float between beauty and an awkward chaos.

Patrick was born in Syracuse and now resides in New York City. He studied at Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute and received a BFA in Painting and Video Art from Alfred University in 1998. Exhibitions include: MOMA / PS1, Nicole Klagsbrun, Monya Rowe Gallery, Zieher Smith, Edward Thorpe Gallery, Artist Space and Clifton Benevento in New York. Brennan has been awarded residencies at Atlanta College of Art, Atlanta GA, Burren College of Art (Ireland), and The Experimental Television Center Owego.

A special edition monograph, "Mirrors for Eyes", with a discussion between Patrick Brennan and Amy Sillman, will accompany this exhibition.
