Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents artist Patrick Quarm's Parallel Identities: Pattern of Place at the TTU Satellite Gallery as part of the April 2018 First Friday Art Trail. The exhibition will be on view from 6 PM – 9 PM, Friday, April 6, 2018 for FFAT. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
"Parallel Identities: Pattern of Place," an exhibition by Patrick Quarm, explores the fluidity of self when in a new country. Quarm's artwork explores his Ghanian roots and his experience with "Western culture" that creates a hybrid culture to his works. The pieces are intimate and familiar and at the same time distant, highlighting the dual nature of self in transition. He notes that his work is an examination of this hybridity of culture and expression.
Born and raised in Ghana and currently living in the United States, Quarm explores the confrontation upon his identity living in a new culture and environment with his art. He is currently a MFA student in the School of Art at Texas Tech University.
The Texas Tech University Satellite Gallery at Charles Adams Studio Project - CASP is located at 1108 5th Street (5th street and Avenue J) in downtown Lubbock.
