Joseph Patrick Arnegger @ GAZE Modern
A Sarasota resident since 1990, Joseph Patrick Arnegger graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design. He was born in Boston, grew up in Connecticut and Montauk, Long Island.
Arnegger’s work is composed in layers of nostalgic image and color. This speaks to the influence of many time periods and many different painters throughout art history. The materials, already with a sense of history of their own, range from found wood to industrial metals. This, combined with his set of icons, patinas and deliberate mark making, creates images that are unconventionally beautiful yet deeply moving, demanding a second look.
