Gestures and Geometries

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Andrew Paterson's paintings share a visual architecture built upon the interaction between overlaid and interwoven fields of colour, gesture and geometric design.

Elements and operational modes are drawn together from Japanese and Islamic calligraphy, gestural and hard edged abstraction, graffiti, screen printing, and the geometries of Moorish design and the aperiodic Penrose tilings.

Tension is set up between the considered and the spontaneous. Dissonance is resolved at times through colour harmonics and at others through geometric rhythms.

True resolution though, in these seemingly busy paintings, is eventually to be found in the stillness and space that lies at the heart of their implied harmonies, within their unpainted colours.
