Patrick Foran is an artist and educator whose recent work engages the mediated nature of disasters in late capitalist societies, the aesthetic connections between sporting events and mass political demonstrations, and the facelessness of portraiture. At ArtPrize 8 and 9, his entries were selected by the jury at Fountain Street Church for the Social Action Committee Prize, and in 2016 three drawings from the Defacement series were featured on the cover of the Grand Rapids Press. Originally from Michigan, he studied English and Film at The University of Michigan (BA), English and Visual Studies at Cornell University (MA), and Art and Visual Studies at the University at Buffalo (MFA). He lives and works in Buffalo, NY. // www.patrickforan.info
