Vincent Patterson is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in the North West. Graduate of the University of Chester with an MA in Design Patterson’s print work explores themes of lost narrative and abstracted fragments of memory.
Working across a range of print media including Screenprint, Risograph, Photography, Typography, and illustration his prints are as much a story of the process as the finished print. Utilising found and reappropriated imagery, collaged with rich textures and bold colours, the layering up of inks, collage, pencil, and oils by hand builds the rich surfaces to produce unique screen-printed monoprints.
His recent works echo a series of stolen cinematic moments from the French New Wave pumped and twisted on a bad trip with vivid neon colours. A series of papercut stencils hand-pulled through a silkscreen building beds of texture with narrative images overlayed on swirling sensual textures to create a series of interlinked one-off monoprints. The image fragments are distressed and sequenced to form individual frames of the story of the movie you never saw.
He has an international customer base for his collectable one-off prints and has recently exhibited in the Art for Youth at the Mall Galleries London, Ty Pawb Open, Nottingham Contemporary, Are Friends Electric show in the Espacio Gallery Shoreditch and the Mostyn Gallery Wonderland Showcase in Llandudno North Wales, Here gallery in Bristol, Image Fantome in Brussels and Manchester, Liverpool, North Wales, The Hepworth print fairs and Wrexham print fairs.
