Where to buy … Patrick Graham: Fact of the Matter

Patrick Graham's enormous, agony-filled canvases astound the viewer with their emotional intensity.

Jack Rutberg Fine ArtsLos Angeles

Patrick Graham creates enormous, agony-filled canvases whose fretfully worked-over surfaces frequently astound with emotional intensity. Several important paintings are diptychs or triptychs, distantly evoking Hieronymous Bosch. Somewhere Jerusalem (1996) suggests a holy city bristling with garrisons, while Dead Swan/Captain’s Hill (1998–99) shows cartoonish jets bombing a landscape littered with crosses. His human figures often seem little more than pain-wracked blobs of skin and blood, buried in the corner of a canvas or deliberately obscured beneath aggressive brush strokes, disfiguring drips, and obscure symbols. 357 N. La Brea Ave., (323) 938-5222. Through Aug. 31. Prices range from $9,000 to $150,000.
