Patrick Moser earned his MFA in Painting from the University of Florida and teaches courses in painting, drawing, and visual culture at Flagler.
Recently, a selection of Moser’s work was chosen for the 2014 Urban Explorers Festival in the Netherlands, an international festival of music and new media that features concerts, performances and exhibitions from a range of subjects.
But this isn’t the first time Moser has achieved artistic success or traveled to present his work. He has also presented exhibits at The Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle and the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in New York, as well as published articles in periodicals like the National Forum Magazine and New American Paintings, to name just a few of his accomplishments.
Moser channels his experiences into lessons for art students and pushes them to experiment with different media, a task he took on a few years ago when he decided to reach out from painting and dabble in film. Needless to say, his work paid off with his acceptance into a show at the Fundada Artists' Film Festival (FAFF) in Wakefield, England. His film, titled “Patty Goes” and which featured stop animation using 400 different paintings, was an homage to 1960s Bigfoot images.
Moser admits that part of his inspiration comes from the rewarding experience of watching his students develop into artists, and he applauds the space Flagler provides for students and faculty alike to work and produce. “We’ve really created a culture here,” he says.
