About Room For It

Bright and bold colour takes center stage in this abstract painting by Scott Pattinson.
Dynamic gestural strokes of green, yellow, orange, blue, white, red, purple and pink jam against black. The Canadian artist uses a broad brush to add thick layers of acrylic paint to create expressive work that captures the viewer’s attention.

“Pattinson plays with the emotional triggers of colours, 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.” R. M. Vaughan, Art Critic

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.
