Turtle Islands: Patrick Vincent
The Framemaker proudly presents prints by Patrick Vincent. This exhibit is part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on March 5, 2020. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of March during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
“I use print and print-based structures to explore myth and narrative in graphic traditions, mixing traditional and contemporary animal-human iconography to survey contemporary social and ecological issues.”
The series of prints ” Turtle Islands” responds to the natural environment, specifically water and fire, as the effects of climate change become increasingly severe. Each print centers on turtle shell as a suggestion of the world as a tangible object–referencing cosmological and ontological myths were the turtle shell is the world or supports the world, as we know it–as well as a signifier of a natural structure against various dynamic elements.
Patrick Vincent is from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He received his B.F.A. from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and his M.F.A. from Arizona State University. Presently, he is the Associate Professor of Printmaking at Austin Peay State Univerity in Clarksville, TN.
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from the Clarksville Academy.
