Patrick Duegaw was born in New York in 1966. He received a degree in Architecture at Kansas State University in 1989, and co-founded Fisch Haus Studios in 1990. Duegaw, with his wife (artist Elizabeth Stevenson), lives and works both in the Fisch Haus in downtown Wichita, Kansas, and in Montreal QC.
His painted constructs, executed on sheetrock substrates that he assembles from salvaged materials, record various self-built environments (also built from available materials) and the people who inhabit them. The resultant imagery is part of an on-going ‘Painted Theater’ installation project he has termed the ‘Still Play’.
Duegaw has had seven large-scale solo exhibitions at the Fisch Haus, as well as in galleries in both Kansas City and San Francisco, shown nationally in many group shows, and will have his first major solo museum exhibition in 2009 at the Wichita Art Museum. His work has been reviewed in Review, and Art In America magazines, and has been featured in New American Paintings.
"My paintings are a palimpsestic narrative that I achieve with the application of thin paint over the top of previous drawings on sheetrock, cut from the walls of my studio. This prompts an interaction between my old and new thoughts, creating a layered study of connections between the past and the present. The paintings are visual journal entries; not only recording a few of the people and spaces that exist within the Fisch Haus, but the passage of time within each scene as well. Therefore, no explanation of my artwork would be complete without referring to the relationship between my built environment and artistic explorations." (Patrick Duegaw)
