EXHIBITION OPENING RECEPTION
Patrick Lundeen’s Dadaistic, improvisation-based, sound-making sculptures are simultaneously humorous and abrasive. Lundeen’s process includes freely associating with the meanings already within the found materials that he manipulates, and the creation of new forms based on creative intuition. Many of the works included in Noise Farm contain elements that encourage viewer interaction and participation.
Patrick Lundeen is an artist currently living and working in Kelowna, he teaches drawing and painting at the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus.
Past exhibitions have included: Mike Weiss Gallery (NYC), ThreeWalls (Chicago), Confederation Centre (Charlottetown), Wetterling Gallery (Stockholm), Katherine Mulherin (Toronto), Parisian Laundry (Montreal) and AKA Gallery (Saskatoon).
