Set Piece (or) Fisch Haus, 3rd Floor, West End, 320º | horizontal

Patrick Duegaw's avatar Patrick Duegaw

A fitting allegory for our society's current state of heightened anxiety, the artist's studio, represented in this twenty eight-foot long panoramic interior painting, becomes the 'set' for a painted drama happening in real time. Lit candles are placed in precarious positions and then forgotten, embers fall onto wooden furniture, gas burners are left unattended, and numerous overly-taxed and frayed extension cords run rampant throughout the rendered space. The 320 degree panoramic view deliberately excludes the final 40 degrees, where the viewer can be assured that further, and undoubtedly increasingly dangerous, perils threaten.
