Abstract painter Patrick Brennan layers paint alongside studio and miscellaneous detritus, including discarded fabrics, cardboard, and popsicle sticks. The forms in his images are incidental to his process; they lack any representational content and emerge through his mark-marking process. “These paintings are intentionally figureless,” he says. “I want to evoke a kind of visual handshake. The space between the picture plane and the viewer is very personal. With painting I’m not seeking out facts.” Without rigorous planning or an initial departure point, Brennan allows his paintings to reveal themselves to him through the process of painting itself. He often varies the size and shape of his frames to create dialogue with the architecture of the gallery.
