American artist Daphne Fitzpatrick is known for her witty embrace of semantic shifts that result from imaginative play with materials, objects and photographs. Her work often combines sculpture and photography. Like the traditions of Dada and Surrealism, her uncanny juxtapositions uproot stable understandings of the world around us.
Fitzpatrick served on the Yale University Sculpture faculty, 2001-2011. She has had exhibitions in the US and abroad, most recently a commission for Art In General in New York and a large-scale public sculpture at Fishers Island. Her work has been written about in Artforum, The New Yorker and The New York Times. She is currently on the photography faculty at Bard College.
