About Christian Patterson

View Profile »

Christian Patterson is a self-taught artist, born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Photographs are the heart of his work and are sometimes accompanied by drawings, paintings and readymade objects. This print comes from Patterson’s recent project Redheaded Peckerwood, which utilizes a true crime story as a spine and functions as a visual crime dossier—a cryptic collection of clues for the viewer to decipher. The project utilizes a multitude of photographic techniques to re-tell a tragic story from the past and is exhibited with documents and objects related to the story. Redheaded Peckerwood was published as a monograph by MACK in 2011 to international critical acclaim, nominated for the 2012 Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards, won the prestigious 2012 Rencontres d’Arles Author Book Award, and is now in its third printing. In 2013 he was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. He is represented by Rose Gallery in Santa Monica and Robert Morat in Hamburg and Berlin. Patterson participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in May 2010.
