Artist Work: Patrick Dougherty
These “weed trees” by Patrick Dougherty are just a few of the amazing art works produced over his many years as a “stick artist”. His work has graced various outdoor and indoor spaces since 1988 when the artist first started creating these massive tree sculptures. I love all things nest-like and these fit right into this unique category, the good news is that we can all enjoy the works of Patrick this summer when he begins a massive instillation at the Brooklyn Botanical gardens starting August 1st, 2010.
This one is a bit surreal sticking out of the side of an already existing building. Overall, I find these sculptures to be quite eloquent.
Here’s a winter scene. These “kiosk” like shapes bring me halfway around the world somewhere in Rissia.
