From McLennon Pen Co. Gallery:
“McLennon Pen Co. Gallery is thrilled to announce Patrick Quinn as the gallery’s first Artist-in-Residence. He will be living and working this summer for the month of August at the gallery in Austin, Texas. The residency will culminate in an exhibition of airbrush paintings made exclusively during the duration of his stay.
Each painting Quinn makes informs the next one. He describes his succession of paintings as memes in a different format, a long-form version, an exercise in how we process images and a “cool space” to spend time with silly, stupid, and absurd contemporary thoughts. These ideas spring up from looking online and scrolling his phone, often browsing Instagram and Google’s Image Search on Page 1 until a photograph is discovered that would “look so good in airbrush.””
