Artist

Patrick Duffy
Brooklyn, New York

The overarching theme of Patrick Duffy’s artwork is transformation. By creating an environment of rhythm and fluidity, he allows each piece to shape itself into unexpected patterns and forms. Patrick often infuses components of physics, such as space, time and matter into his work. Experiencing the outdoors has always been a passion of his, despite living in the concrete jungle of New York City. Fun fact: Patrick competed in cycling races growing up in New England.

Comments About This Piece

This is a series I have been working on that attempts to convey a sense of motion through groups of characters as whole, moving forward in a river like fashion. The pieces are very painterly, with thick brushstrokes and vibrant colors. Nautical themes in my work are influenced predominantly by growing up in a small fishing culture on the ocean, as well as my passion for environmental and physical sciences. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
