Episode 4: Patrick Puckett - Nostalgic Figures

When I arrived at Patrick's he offered me a drink and we had a great talk while sipping Old Fashioneds and trying to keep his hound dog Boudro calm and quiet. From his childhood and college years in Mississippi, to his 6 year hiatus from painting after moving to Austin, to painting almost daily for the last 6 years, we covered a lot of ground. With his fourth show at the Wally Workman gallery open for the month of November 2017, his work is as popular as ever.

"If one really looks, you can see the time pass on the canvas— the life of this figure born there. You can feel their ups and downs and the energy it took to get them to this place."

Rachel Stephens - aether magazine
