Golsa

Patterson is constantly photographing his surroundings. Depictions of houses (some random, some of friends and family’s, others for aesthetic value), details of landscapes: a close up of a wheat field, a lonesome volleyball court on the beach and nature, objects lying around, from toys and books on a shelf, to things seen on the sidewalk. Patterson’s work is about keeping memories, holding on to fleeting moments and being able to relive them through the memorializing process of art making. Furthermore, they engage the viewer by acknowledging the increasing universality of our experience, and thus our collective memories. Eventually, we will all have been here before.

A former member of The Still House Group, Grear Patterson studied at Duke University and the School of Visual Arts in New York. Solo exhibitions include Manhattan Beach, Marlborough Broome Street, NY (2015); Seek and Destroy, DEPART Foundation, Los Angeles (2015); Forest Theatre, The American Academy Rome, (2014) and Duck Test, Ellis King, Dublin (2014). He has been included in group shows at Jonathan Viner, London; Sprovieri, London; Total Project Space, Athens; Frank Pictures Gallery, Santa Monica; Steven Kasher Gallery, NY; Galerie Olivier Robert, Paris and the 9th Shanghai Biennale in 2012.
