The artwork of David Patterson reveals the importance of not taking the environment for granted thus missing the beauty that nature and life provides. Many times these simple things are passing us by. We need to slow down and remind ourselves of the natural forces and harmony that is the backbone to the survival of this world. Patterson uses the abstract, breaking it down to the simplest forms divulging the ever-present element of nature in his works. To the artist, painting is blending the outside world with the inside world and using the canvas as a 2 dimensional surface to express those feelings. Patterson is a graduate from art school and also has a diploma in graphic design, though he has spent a majority of his years exploring a variety of artistic fields. He is experienced in the studio with a history of corporate graphic design to special events and set design but is now devoted to his fine art and studio. As a multifaceted artist and musician Patterson is always in creation of new works. Dedicating his time to painting, he has managed to create a large body of work and has developed a style of working with unique textures and designs. As his style continues to evolve, he never strays from the concept of nature and natural forces in some way. Today Patterson resides in South Surrey, White Rock and has many exhibitions in numerous galleries and festivals and displayed in private and corporate collections throughout British Columbia and Alberta. Currently the artist is working on drawing landscapes from memories inspired by places with a sense of familiarity, not only based on appearance but also associated with reminiscence. Patterson likes to over exemplify the balance between symmetry which is a natural occurrence in his paintings and is not always obvious to the naked eye. “I hope some of these paintings instills memories of places that you may have been. In body and in spirit.”
