Wally Workman Gallery presents "Patrick Puckett" opening day
Puckett's paintings are known for their bold colors and languid figures, executed with confident interaction between paint application, shape, color and texture. In this new body of work, the artist plays with patterns to push and pull on the picture plane particularly 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 - emanating a sense of dynamism to postures of leisure.
The exhibit will be on display until May 29.
