Patrick Walter is a multimedia artist whose practice includes working in metal fabrication, collage and video art. His work focuses on the fabrication of three-dimensional objects derived from an obsession with post–Industrial Revolution design and modern architecture.
His current work focuses on the fabrication of trophies “The trophy is a miniature monument to accomplishment, struggle and travesty. When used in a subversive manner the trophy van be transformed into an anti-monument to contemporary conditions,” Walter said.
Walter was born in a small town in northwestern Wisconsin and received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Arts from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee in 2010.
The “Master of Fine Arts Degree Candidates Exhibition” is on view at the Georgia Museum of Art from April 12 to May 4, 2014, with a free preview opening reception Friday, April 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. MFA Speaks is scheduled for Thursday, April 17, at 5:30 p.m. and will feature the artists discussing their work.
