Patrick Hartigan’s practice brings together drawings, paintings, film and written work made in response to his experiences of domesticity, travel and found imagery. Patrick Hartigan is the art critic for The Saturday Paper.
“…painting has been, and continues to be, central to my process but I continue to enjoy working across different media. Painting is a more visceral medium than others and therefore feels more suited to the mess and complexities of people…”
His work is held in collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; the Chartwell Collection, Auckland City Art Gallery, New Zealand; and Wollongong University, New South Wales, Australia.
