This series attempts to convey a mirror between oceans or rivers, and to groups of people or "whirlpools" as I like to call it. The pieces are very painterly with thick brush strokes 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.

Getting to Know Patrick

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.
