About the Instructor

Patrick Brennan is a Boston-based LGBTQ artist and MFA student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He works in the language of plastic because we live in a world made of synthetic polymers and every part of our lives is defined by that material. There is such a rich context to be gained from thinking about the interplay and juxtaposition of different plastics with each other and ways to compare those materials to their analogs in culture and nature. In addition to his art practice, Patrick is also an art educator, currently employed by Massachusetts College of Art and Design, formerly by the Institute of Contemporary Art.
