Richard Patterson - Only Fans

Tue-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm

Timothy Taylor is pleased to present a new exhibition of abstract paintings by Richard Patterson (b. 1963, Leatherhead, Surrey). Only Fans consists of thirteen small-scale paintings that draw the viewer into a bravado performance of gestural painting, a return to the essential.

Milky celadon streaks across linen canvases, a carnal palette of rose and ochre in glistening impasto that is, in one sense, a rejection of digital imagery and embrace of the physical, the passionate, the hard work of heartfelt painting. While the shapes of lost loves have recurred in Patterson’s work since the nineties, here her image is bound by the paradox of virtual reality: a repository of longing and distance.
