Canadian artist Scott Pattinson has chosen a predominantly blue palette (with a single touch of pink) to create this expressive oil painting. Since the early nineteenth century, blue has traditionally been considered a male colour; pink--female. Pattinson uses an intense colour palette and abstracted forms to convey emotion in his work.
“…There is much more of a direct conversation in the elements that are happening in the (abstract) painting so every brush stroke becomes more important.” Scott Pattinson
He 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. Scott Pattinson is represented exclusively by the Oeno Gallery.
