Warm hues of red, orange and pink infuse this painting. The brush strokes are confident. The work is framed in a simple soft grey reveal frame. As Clement Greenberg wrote, abstract expressionism is about painterliness. Aiden Ware, Curator at Gallery Stratford, describes Pattinson's work as lustfully painterly. Big brush strokes, robust swirls, raggedy bits vying against pulsing paint baubles...the rhythm, she writes, is push pull push pull. "Its spectacularly physical."
