Redbud Gallery is pleased to present the new work of Houston based artist Patrick Medrano in his exhibition "The Great Decline". On view from March 13 through April 27, 2021 at our west gallery.
"I would like to invite you, the viewer, to put your own opinions, thoughts, and experiences in front of the Artist's thoughts and opinions. It is an open conversation. This exhibition is a collaborative endeavor of thoughts and meanings between you, the Artist, and the beautiful Redbud Gallery.
Just know that this show was produced throughout the 2020 pandemic. It is simply what it took for me and my family to stay mentally, physically, and soulfully alive.
I have always been inspired to speak out and say something, and to do something about what I see and hear, especially when it involves beauty or injustice. Art has always been my loudest and most clear form of communicating.
The definition and reasoning behind most soul filled creations are answered only by the biography of the maker. They usually have no idea how they made it because it is instinctual. Inspired and influenced by their surroundings, situations, and experiences, they simply get to work." [Organizer's description]
