"Puckett uses a very consciously naive sense of representation and an intentional use of abstraction- details of a figure or a setting are not always refined, shadows are rendered deliberately dark in places, proporations not always worked out evenly. Nevertheless, there is an immediate familiarity with these scenes."
- Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, Austin American Statesman, July 18, 2013. Full article here.
Read about Patrick Puckett's creative process in aether magazine here.
I was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1979 and moved to Austin, Texas in 2005. Studying under professor James Meade at the University of Southern Mississippi, I received my bachelor degree in fine arts in 2002. My paintings are visual inventions culled from a life lived in the South. When I’m not painting I work as a graphic designer, drink beer, and listen to Elvis.
