From Rubber Duckies to Cubism, San Francisco based sculptor Jud Bergeron examines the trials
and tribulations of parenthood through sculpture.
Exploring the multi-faceted experience of becoming a parent, Bergeron's works address the
various stages and emotions involved in the transition, ranging from confusion to euphoria. Works
such as “Quack-Quack” – a child's antique pedal car featuring an atom bomb explosion-shaped
eruption of rubber duckies – embody the surreal and sometimes overwhelming experience of new
parenthood in sculptural form. As a whole, the combination of works on view is intended to be an
immersive experience for viewers, affecting a sense of disorientation and wonder.
Jud Bergeron is a Bay Area sculptor residing in San Francisco. His sculpture has been exhibited
throughout North America and Europe (including a 2009 solo exhibition with Wolfe
Contemporary). Bergeron works in myriad styles and materials but generally gravitates towards
permanent materials. He has been awarded public art commissions in a number of cities around
the country and his sculpture has been in museum shows and is included in many important
private collections. Most importantly, he is the father of 2.
For over two decades, Scott Patt has documented his global, urban and rural adventures,
collecting and photographing how people communicate and connect through sign, symbol, color,
texture and time. In his newest work, Patt refines and transmutes this loaded imagery to the edge
of the familiar into new forms, rhythms, and personalities. With this new collection Patt evolves
and unites the graphic language of his bold “Good Luck Hex” series and the fluid forms of his
successful “Stays Crunchy in Milk” work into a more distilled take on the world around him.
Scott Patt is an artist whose work is informed by the big pitch, by the aesthetics of communication
and its multivalent layers in our physical environments – urban and rural. Inspired by the folk art
of his youth and post pop consumerism with its primary colors and promises of a healthier
tomorrow, Patt was born in Allentown PA at the confluence of past greats – steel town and
country idyll. His paintings, sculpture and installations have been shown around the world—from
Japan to New York, with recent 2012/2013 solo exhibitions at Winston Wächter Fine Art in NYC
and 212 Gallery in Aspen, CO. Scott currently lives and works in Southern California.
