Patrick Gallagher’s current work centers on the use of emerging technology and interaction. He is a video and sound installation artist working with various electronic mediums, photographic processes and the moving image. He began his career producing video compositions for electronic music events in and around NYC in 1998, creating immersive environments in the style of pop art and expressionism.
Based in Brooklyn, NY since 1996 he has continued to show regularly in and around NYC, Philadelphia, PA, Boston, MA, Tulsa, OK, Viareggio and Masphra, Italy. His most recent work is part of a permanent installation at the Hydropolis Museum in Wroclaw, Poland and a performance installation La Fragua, in Belalcazar, Spain.
A painter who works with large-scale interactive sculpture, a video artist who transforms sound into photography. In an era were oil paintings can incorporate physical computing and sculpture involves elements of programing, the lines of what medium artists ascribe their work becomes irrelevant. I am inspired by the chance to explore new materials and new technologies. To me this expanding pallet of resources presents a limitless source of creative energy.
