Between Dream And Reality
By Patrick Paul Rene
March 3rd-April 29th
Working with his emotions, Patrick Paul Rene offers us his vision of the magnificence of light in the American southwest as it changes from day to day, season to season. As a progressive self-taught photographer, Patrick devoted several years to large format photography. He now explores all prospects of the digital era producing a palette of pseudo ‘paintings’ that brings an eclectic update to his traditional photography.While he continues to explore and expand his areas of research, Patrick often revisits his favorite territories to capture the varying moods of these vast and wild desert landscapes.
His conceptualization and mastering of new techniques has led Patrick to an enticing variety of photographic possibilities. Where we see a broken down vehicle, a deserted ranch, or even familiar landscapes in Canyon Country, he sees captivating lines, textures, pensive moods, and the opportunity to develop tantalizing visual experiences.
