June 10-12, 2019 | @BildLab
Patrick Duegaw presents a three day long pop-up print release show, to premiere the first two prints in his new lithograph series entitled "The Trials of the Golden Rat".
Duegaw's latest project explores the power of drawing, the creative process, and the epic myth of The Twelve Labours of Hercules. Five random marks made on a blank plate serve as a jumping-off point resulting in this series of abstracted figures: animal-human hybrids revealing themselves in a provocative tale of ignorance, manipulation and control, intolerance, hubris, greed; but also of justice and acceptance. Part cloud-busting, part Rorschach test, the employment of the childhood game of Five Lines has yielded fourteen images, each a small edition of lithographs, together representing the ancient mythical trials of the son of Zeus as seen through a contemporary lens.
More information about the entire series is available on Patrick's website, patrickduegaw.com.
My print release pop-up show at bildlab will be up until the end of the day Wednesday the 12th. If you couldn’t make it...
