Richard Patterson’s complex, multilayered paintings sit firmly within the grand tradition of European and American art, to which he has added his own. One of the Young British Artists to emerge in the late 1980s, and a participant in both the Freeze and Sensation exhibitions, the artist has continued to challenge and push the boundaries of painting today. His collage paintings are steeped in pop culture allusions ranging from films, magazines and music to advertising and consumerism, while simultaneously testing the links between painting, iconography and the narrative. At long last a comprehensive survey on Patterson’s rich career. Texts by Toby Kamps and Jeremy Strick and an artist interview by Martin Herbert.
