ROBERT PATRICK PUCKETT
“You have to just get paint on the canvas, and like writing a song, it kind of tells you the chorus needs to be added here, or the verse needs to be here”
“You have a dialogue with the shapes, the lines and colors, like a fight or a nice chat. You let the painting you where it needs to go.”
Patrick Puckett 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, he received his bachelor degree in fine arts in 2002. His paintings are visual inventions culled from a life lived in the South.
