About Denouement No 53

This gestural work has a strong graphic quality, with sparse calligraphic black mark making. However, the exuberance in the piece comes from the warm broad strokes of the golden yellow, tangerine and crimson red. Pattinson's body of work uniformly evokes this intense engagement of the moment where sensuality and emotion are built into mapped geometries of sliding specificity. Carrying on the tradition of abstract expressionism (one thinks of de Kooning), Pattinsons's work defies a static definition.
