Patrick Gannon – From the Bamboo Forests of the Night

From the Bamboo Forests of the Night cut paper art by Patrick Gannon

Entangled in the vines and bamboo of the shadowy forest, no other animal has quite the same combination of feline grace and stealthy, coiled threat as the tiger. Part ofThe Way of Flow exhibition, featuring the artwork of Patrick Gannon, running from December 4, 2009 – January 2, 2010 at C.A.V.E. Gallery, Venice, CA.

Patrick Gannon

Patrick's illustrations and artwork are made entirely of cut-paper (and often wood) in his studio in Tokyo, Japan, where he lives with his amazing wife and a very, very large collection of paper from all over the world.

Mixing bold whimsy with a subtle conceptual streak, his artwork combines influences from his life in Japan and his upbringing on a farm in New Jersey where he was surrounded (and occassionally attacked) by animals and the natural world. His interest in myths and fables, pop-culture, cool textures and weird critters invades his artwork.
