Patrick Duegaw (b. 1966, New York) has most recently opened two solo shows; Pierced By Dogma, a large painting exhibition at the Ulrich Museum of Art, and Study, an exhibition of study drawings for those paintings at the Fisch Haus. In 1990 Duegaw co-founded the art organization Fisch Haus, originally conceived as a series of hit-and-run exhibition/performance events that transformed abandoned spaces in downtown Wichita, Kansas into art happenings, has now become one of the leading cultural movements in the State. His work has been placed in many private, corporate, and institutional collections, including the Ulrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Wichita Art Museum, The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, the Kansas Health Foundation, and the Emprise Bank Collection; reviewed in Art In America, The Kansas City Pitch, and Review magazines; and appeared in New American Paintings. The Painted Theatre Project: The Innumerable Anxieties, Patrick Duegaw’s most current body of work, reinterprets both painting and the basic rules of dramatic construction. The Project is an on-going documentary that is part installation piece, part theatre production, where, in place of thespians, objects, and a stage, it instead features painted cast, props, and sets. The action that takes place is rendered to imply movement, rather than actually performed, and the dialog is written rather than spoken. These static-theatre productions have grown out of his wide range of experiences, from the construction site to the stage, and as a painter in his studios both at the Fisch Haus and in Montréal, Québec.
