About

This oil on canvas is a billowing narrative of atmospheric change. Light pierces the rapid brushed areas of pink, yellow, grey, pale green and Prussian blue giving a sense of the artist's experience of a tropical Pacific location. . The work of painter Scott Pattinson (b. 1974, Toronto) may be seen in the context of an early 21st century resurgence of formalism unburdened by the meta-narratives of modern abstraction. Pattinson’s thematically organized oil paintings are micro-narratives of collective experience articulated through colour, texture and an exacting spatial sensibility. Pattinson studied architecture and urban design at the University of Toronto. 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. This work is accompanied by the recent catalogue publication, SCOTT PATTINSON. In the book, Berlin art critic R.M. Vaughan is exuberant in his description: "Pattinson plays with the emotional triggers of colors, 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 painting 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 decor blown out and splayed across the strike zone." Pattinson is represented exclusively by Oeno Gallery.
