Kyle Patnaude

info
current
 

Kyle Patnaude is currently based in Portland, Maine as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Maine College of Art. He completed his BFA degree in Sculpture from Pratt Institute in 2006 and in 2012 received an MFA in Metalsmithing from the University of Wisconsin Madison. Embracing a hybrid practice as a sculptor rooted in the rich traditional methods of metalsmithing, the work unites contemporary sculptural forms with the skill and elegance of precious metalworking.

His work explores the emotive and humanistic coding of objects which rebound a certain "queerness" pertaining to the cultural guise of hypermasculinity. The objects within the work explore elements of a concealed external world within the public, city streets, restrooms, and parks, providing a subtext for the distinct affective theme of their “queerness.”
