Fresh A.I.R. Gallery cordially invites you to The Fool, an exhibition featuring the artwork of Patrick Vincent. Please join us for the opening reception on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm with an artist talk at 7:00 pm. The Fool will be on view at Fresh A.I.R. Gallery from December 4 to January 17, 2020. Patrick is a self-taught synesthete artist based in Columbus. Through his artwork, he knows how to stimulate one sensory or cognitive pathway, such as smell, in order to involuntarily stimulate another, such as sound.
Patrick creates intricate, abstract paintings and frequently pairs them with scents from his own collection.
The Fool, named after a symbolic Tarot card, celebrates the beginning of a new path for Patrick and the end of an obsessive, chaotic one. "In my own way, I am the Fool," he writes in his artist statement. "I yearn to see how far this life goes. I've made my own foolish decisions, dealt with the consequences, hurt loved ones, and almost completely lost myself . . . I've learned to see in the dark parts of my mind through art, which is my own unique light, one kindled by change and bravery."
