Patrick Earl Hammie’s large scale figurative oil paintings explore the tension between power and vulnerability as re-imaginations of the modern male. Blending traditions of the Old Masters with contemporary modes of representation, his portraits question and present visual alternatives to historical examples of masculinity.  Drawing from his life history as a son, a male and an African American struggling to synthesize past adversity, Hammie’s paintings symbolize his shadow-selves and visualize the effort to reconcile inner duality, transcend typical masculine ideals and yield to new realities that require constant compromise and change.
