Canadian artist Scott Pattinson is known for his expressive colourful abstract paintings that immediately engage the viewer. This piece is rendered in more subtle colours—gestural strokes of orange, green, blue and pink play against dominant black markings—all against a white backdrop.
“(In abstraction) ….there is much more of a direct conversation in the elements that are happening in the painting so every brush stroke becomes more important.”
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.
