Patrick Millard is an artist who originates from the small Western Michigan town of Lamont and now lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His work in photography, painting, mixed media, sound and installation has resulted in a diversified portfolio that addresses ideas about media, culture, technology and the interactions that human beings have within their own synthetic environment. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and continues to gain recognition.
Recent exhibitions include the international art happening, Blow the City in Ghent, Belgium; Digital Fringe at the Melbourne Fringe Festival in Melbourne, Australia; Fauna Show at The Workshop Gallery in Bialystok, Poland; Origins at the Fox Art Gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Snap To Grid at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in Los Angeles, California, and A Million Little Pictures at Art House in Decatur, Georgia.
In 2008, Patrick began to show work inside the virtual simulation world Second Life; exhibitions that advance beyond two-dimension work and expand his ideas of simulation, virtual reality, and the synthetic future where the physical object gives way to its virtual counterpart and its presence is valued entirely for its idea rather than its place in space.
Patrick received a bachelor's of arts in photography from Grand Valley State University and a master's in fine arts for photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
He currently works as an adjunct professor of photography at Grand Valley State University and is a photography instructor at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
