2019

$10,000

About

Calligraphic passages of bright orange, pink, dove grey and blues swirl and pulse in this windswept oil by Scott Pattinson. The artist's thematically organized oil paintings are micro-narratives of collective experience articulated through color, texture and an exacting spatial sensibility. Writes critic RM Vaughan: "Pretty colours and curious shapes abound. Artists, especially young artists, want to be happy again. Who can blame them? Scott Pattinson has been ahead of this curve for years (but, again, it is best to avoid progress model thinking when it comes to art … oh, to hell with it, he’s been ahead of the curve). Pattinson’s paintings are dense with hard blocks of colour and sinewy lines, but as light in tone, and in their transparency, as spider webs. A Pattinson painting can simultaneously appear near-complete, like an advanced draft, and wholly polished, can be as giddy as a parade and cut-in-stone as a graveyard. Pattinson plays with the emotional triggers of colours, mostly by slamming together unlikely, even decadent, contrasting hues and then encases those associations, the metonymic readings possible, with harsh, cutting and calligraphic blackish strokes. A Pattinson paiting is a bird nest built in the rafters of a disco, an ornamental garden behind bars, a severe steel tower struck by a hurricane, with all the pretty interior décor blown out and splayed across the strike zone. " Pattinson studied architecture and urban design at the University of Toronto and completed a BES in Urban Design from the University of Waterloo. Since 2005, he has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries across Canada, including a 2014 retrospective at Gallery Stratford. His work is held at Gallery Stratford as well as in numerous corporate and private collections in Canada, Dubai, Italy, France and the US.
