Patrick aims for a sense of fun in his paintings, playing around with different concepts.
He often references ideas from other artists, films and black and white photographs. For example, using images from Wild West movies to create a new narrative in which cowboys with sombreros ride on swing boats. Or reimagining early cycling races, inspired by flickering old film footage.
West Gallery: Sue Hallissey
Sue paints looking at or surrounded by her subject. But, all is transient. light changes, flowers fade, mind shifts.
Working quickly Sue uses line and colour as complimentary and interdependent. Warp and Weft. Ying and Yang. Sue’s aim is that the mismatch between colour and line adds its own energy to the work. It’s this intangible life force that she hopes to communicate.
