In subsequent years, Dougherty has developed a body of work that seems to fly through trees, overtake buildings, and define, in his stand-alone structures, a kind of modern primitive architecture.
Born in 1945 and raised in the woodlands of North Carolina, Patrick Dougherty developed an appreciation for the utility of sticks during childhood play and became aware that sometimes a thicket of branches can achieve the effect of a natural drawing. Despite a career in health administration, he continued to pine for wild places, and in the early 1980s he tried his hand at weaving tree saplings into large three-dimensional sketches. In subsequent years, Dougherty has developed a body of work that seems to fly through trees, overtake buildings, and define, in his stand-alone structures, a kind of modern primitive architecture. He has made over two hundred sculptures around the world and currently lives in Chapel Hill with his wife, Linda, and his son, Sam.
The exhibition presents the work of the artist in the former stables of the Domain and, from June 4th 2011, for three weeks of artistic residence, Patrick Dougherty realized a work for the Trévarez' Park.
The ground floor of stables with a window peaking in 15 meters welcomes the huge photos of a selection of Patrick Dougherty's works, favoring an immersive discovery. The exhibition also presents an artist's portrait, its artistic residence to Trévarez and proposes a thematic presentation of its works through three sections: shelter, have a dialogue with the architecture, draw the landscape.
