The colour palette is exotic—bright yellows, orange, purple, blues, greens, white and black. The wild tangle of brush strokes gives this abstract painting by Scott Pattinson a vibrant energy. The Canadian artist is known for his expressive use of colour as a language. There is Something.
“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
