A small and gestural abstract work. Pale purple, soft green, and bright yellow and orange mix with shades of grey, foregrounded by splattered black. Pattinson's body of work uniformly evokes an intense engagement of the moment where sensuality and emotion are built into mapped geometries of sliding specificity. Carrying on the tradition of abstract expressionism, Pattinsons's work defies a static definition. (b.1974, Toronto, ON) Pattinson studied architecture and urban design at Oxford University and the University of Toronto. Both disciplines inform his dynamic, structural abstract painting. Since 2005, Pattinson has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries across Canada, including a 2014 retrospective at Gallery Stratford.
