Man in a Ring Mold
Solo Show by Patrick James Donovan
April 8 - May 7, 2023
In this video, we are excited to share with you the interview and atmosphere from the solo exhibition by Patrick James Donovan, titled "Man in a Ring Mold." This exhibition showcases Donovan's playful and thought-provoking approach to art.
Through his paintings, Donovan presents a range of themes and subjects, from shirtless men and Amazon packages to surveillance, laboring bodies, and homelessness. He also incorporates elements of 60's inspired space age furniture and old ladies, with a palette of hues that diffuses any potentially polemic content.
What sets Donovan's work apart is his pursuit of enjoyment in what painting can do when relational aesthetics smash into each other. His self-consciousness presents itself as the object of reality, rather than what is represented, making each piece a documentation of an outward curiosity that also veritably defines the painter painting themselves.
Donovan's "Man in a Ring Mold" is on display at LAST Projects from April 8 to May 7, 2023. Don't miss the chance to see this fascinating exhibition!
