Patrick DeGuira

text based works
November 5–27

Black Cat, 2011, acrylic on canvas, 60 x 72 inches

signs, patterns, animals

Nashville-based artist Patrick DeGuira describes his work as nonlinear, and based in a variety of mediums using pre-digital sign-making techniques to achieve a level of handmade precision. The pieces start with words and phrases which are then layered and disrupted through complex systems of pattern, geometry, and editing processes.

He states, “I am interested in ideas that convey a phenomenological disruption or reduction. My work is often based on family histories, childhood experiences, or on familiar domestic subject matter.”
