“Redheaded Peckerwood, which unerringly walks the fine line between fiction and nonfiction, is a disturbingly beautiful narrative about unfathomable violence and its place on the land” – Luc Sante “Complexity, evidence and mystery lies waiting for our journey to explore, to dive in.” – Jimmy Kuenhle, ArtHOPPER In Christian Patterson’s largest solo museum show to date, the artist takes as his subject the killing spree of 19-year-old Charles Starkweather.
