Upon viewing Patrick Duegaw’s paintings one feels as though they have been hit in the gut with how fresh and reactive his work is. His art is steeped in the past, with reflective moments of traditional painterly process of color, light and form mixed with basic rules of dramatic construction.

Duegaw simultaneously places paint upon an unconventional and purposely broken-up common household drywall material. His skillful hand and visionary eye creates each beautifully painted form.
