Timothy Taylor is pleased to present Only Fans, a new exhibition of abstract paintings by Richard Patterson (b. 1963, Leatherhead, Surrey).

Only Fans consists of thirteen small-scale paintings that draw the viewer into a bravado performance of gestural painting, a return to the essential. Milky celadon streaks across linen canvases, a carnal palette of rose and ochre in glistening impasto that is, in one sense, a rejection of digital imagery and embrace of the physical, the passionate, the hard work of heartfelt painting. Yet Patterson’s evocation of primal sensuality is wrapped in layers of alienation that also suggest the numbing effects of searching for status and sexuality online.
