Opening Reception Friday, December 16, 6-8pm 535 West 22nd Street
In collaboration with Morgan Lehman Gallery a new body of paintings by Patrick Brennan will be on view. Building upon his solo exhibition, There is an Ocean, at Halsey Mckay, Brennan presents a new suite of his explorations that defy traditional notions of painting. The show runs from December 16, 2011 - January 28, 2012 alongside Paul Wackers, Of Life, in the main exhibition space.
Patrick Brennan – Moon Drawings, iMovies and Mirrors for Eyes
Tuesday, December 20th, 6 - 9pm 195 East 3rd Street
Holiday sprits will be served.
This event marks the release of Mirrors for Eyes, published by Halsey Mckay Gallery and the artist. The 40 page, full-color, monograph includes an interview with Amy Sillman, a poem for the artist by Lauren VHS, installation images as well as a portfolio paintings.
Titled, Moon Drawings, Patrick Brennan will be exhibiting a new body of his works on paper and screening his recently finished iMovies for the event. Made with the same casual splicing, snipping, camoflauging approach as his paintings, these outlets find the artist on new surfaces, terra firma.
Patrick Brennan was born in Syracuse, New York 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, NY.
