About the Exhibition

On view at Saint John's on the Lake

Richard W. Patt’s polychromatic landscapes balance abstract and representational depictions of Wisconsin’s farmland and their iconic barns. These are not sleepy, pastoral farms, but ones that pop and vibrate with energy as Patt’s color and geometric patterning merge together to create rich quilt-like compositions.
