Born Again Bird
Drawing and portraiture are the primary interests of Patrick Eggers’ work. He uses these long-established methods to reinvigorate not only the question and purpose of drawing, but also as a way to explore our culture today. Camping in Canyonlands, Utah… It’s Raining Babies. 1:29 a.m. July 5th 2138 imagines a society very changed in the future, where overpopulation leads to a storm of babies falling from the sky. In the piece Born Again Bird, Egger explores the idea of rebirth through his character who imagines what it would be like to be reborn a bird.
