Daphne Fitzpatrick, Artist in Residence

Located somewhere between Duchamp and slapstick comedy, Daphne Fitzpatrick’s photography, found objects, and mixed-media installations infuse the quotidian with uncanny meaning through repetition, shifts in scale, and eyebrow-raising juxtapositions. In her work, cultural references from the Western art historical canon to Groucho Marx all coexist using the language of surrealism and the organizing structure of the non-sequitur. The artist is equally fascinated by the history of the flâneur and the tastes of the dandy; those who developed a refined aesthetic position by appropriating neglected or subversive characteristics of the urban landscape.
