From Gracefield Arts Centre
Gracefield's Toby Patterson exhibition opened yesterday evening, and runs until the 17th of January 2015.
Toby Paterson finds inspiration in what might seem the most unpromising of places, including the concrete landscapes of post-war housing schemes and the decaying remains of utopian building projects. His work stems from an interest in the ideas of architects who were influenced by Modernism and working in the post-war period. He draws on first-hand experiences of visiting and recording built environments around the world, but his artworks go far beyond simply documenting such places: he creatively interprets and re-imagines architectural spaces. Paterson studied painting, and the painted image remains central to his art. In addition to his own work for this exhibition, Toby has curated a selection of work from the Gracefield Permanent Collection, including paintings and prints.
