Artist: Patrick Treacy
May 14 – 26, 2020
I am someone who dislikes clutter. I am also an artist who makes things using innumerable found materials, mostly from books and magazines. As a magpie gatherer, I am always conscious of the need for containment and organization or face chaos in my workspace. Thus there are many images of boxes in this work. On a general level, the concept of containment can include notions of mastery, control, discipline and entitlement
[2]
. However the studio, as a site of creativity, is also of necessity a place of permission, enlargement, expansion, freedom and release. For me the most mysterious container is my own body
I have shown my work in Winnipeg and elsewhere since the 1970’s. My artistic practice is rooted in living in the West End of Winnipeg, in being part of the city’s challenges and strengths, and in a childhood spent in the boreal forest areas of Manitoba and Ontario. At the University of Manitoba I studied under Ivan Eyre, George Swinton, Richard Williams, Bob Sakowski, and Tom Henderson.
