A rapid, calligraphic passage of moss green chases a swirl of curated brushed passages in yellow, pink, violet, grey on a white ground in this oil on canvas. The flurry of lines and breezy energetic ballet of colour in this composition push at the boundaries of the picture plane. Pattinson's work may be seen in the broader context of the early 21st century resurgence of formalism and New Abstraction occurring in the US, Canada and internationally. This work is accompanied by the recent catalogue publication, SCOTT PATTINSON. In the book, Berlin art critic R.M. Vaughan is exuberant in his description: "Pattinson plays with the emotional triggers of colors, mostly by slamming together unlikely, even decadent, contrasting hues and then encases those associations, the metonymic readings possible, with harsh, cutting and calligraphic blackish strokes. A Pattinson painting is a bird nest built in the rafters of a disco, an ornamental garden behind bars, a severe steel tower struck by a hurricane, with all the pretty interior decor blown out and splayed across the strike zone." Pattinson studied architecture and urban design at Oxford University and the University of Toronto. Since 2005, Pattinson has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries across Canada, including a 2014 retrospective at Gallery Stratford.
