A 2002 alumnus of the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta, Patrick Higgins lives and works in Edmonton, AB. Higgins is a member of and has instructed for Harcourt House Arts Centre. He is currently represented by Studio 21, Fine Art in Halifax, NS and his work hangs in many private collections throughout Canada.
Patrick explains the work by saying, “my interest is in attaining a balance between an illusion and the surface of the work that creates a tension. While I strive to present images that are realistic in that they should have the weight and presence of what is observed in life, they should often be elusive in detail and narrative.”
