Richard Patterson, one of the YBAs to emerge in the late 1980’s, has only been seen occasionally in the UK since his move to the US. Visitors to the Timothy Taylor Gallery can see an overview of Patterson’s paintings over the past 15 years, Patterson’s paintings run the gamut of symbolic and cultural referents, from European art history to Japanese trucks, from Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders to Greek myth. Each painting for Patterson is a chance to engage with techniques and effect, but also on a philosophical level to make complex interconnections of meaning, image and making.
On show until June 1st. For more info, please visit the Timothy Taylor Gallery.
