CLIVE PATTERSON

I find inspiration in familiar terrain by noting down elements of interest, structural motifs, and colour combinations; recording them in plein air sketches and in photographs, or occasionally painting on location. Within the work I build a tension around features that may appear obscure at first glance, but which with deeper investigation reveal links that allude to the observed location.

Underlying core colours set a basic tone to the paintings, with contrasting colours emphasising form and pattern providing vibrancy and balance within the composition. Most of my pieces are scaled to a square shape with the intention of encouraging the viewer to ponder what may lie outside the boundaries of this restricted form.

Working with acrylic and oil paint I with additional use of pastel crayon, graphite pencil, charcoal or oil bar where I want to emphasise structure, or to delineate portions of the painting that need stronger expression or visual direction.
