Patrick Russell Facemire

Braxton County



I look for the areas where art and life begin to merge in and out of each other. As a person who is willfully trapped inside of his own skull, I am always attempting to watch the ways that the imagination mediates reality in my own mind and in the minds of others. Therefore, I attempt to create a sense of theatricality in my work while also allowing for some Brechtian disruptions to remind the viewer of what is truly in front of them. I feel that the most interesting moments in art happen when we catch ourselves looking at art.


I paint paintings, draw drawings, and comic comics. I also perform performances.

I am from Braxton County, West Virginia, where there are very few interruptions. I still live there, and am still seldom interrupted.

I am currently a Senior at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown West Virginia; I am a juried vendor with Tamarack and Festivall Charleston, as well as a Tamarack Emerging Artist Fellow. I have had my work featured in several galleries, with one solo exhibit to date, and another on the way.

In my spare time, I pet my dog.
