A native of Kinderhook, NY, Patrick Haemmerlein is a freelance designer & artist living in Los Angeles. After receiving his BFA from The Savannah College of Art and Design in 2000, Patrick took the long road trip cross country and settled down in LA. There he began to obsessively
photograph the city and its components. This gradually moved into a new art form as he started to combine & create with the images he was shooting. Reflecting on the issues of the day, Patrick explores themes of nature Vs. industry and how they can coexist or clash. The images are
all designed from photographs that Patrick has taken. The buildings and cityscapes are from Los Angeles while the animal and farm photos were mostly taken around his hometown area in upstate NY. They are not only a juxtaposition of nature and industry, but a combination of imagery from his two homes - one rural and one urban. These pieces are all made on recycled wood. Crate tops, dresser drawers, table tops, shelving, wine boxes and whatever else Patrick drags home from the treks around his Hollywood neighborhoods.

thanks for listening.......
