About the artist

Born 1988, in Redding, CT, USA. Lives and works in New York, NY, USA. He attended the BFA School of Visual Arts New York. The American artist Grear Patterson is renowned for his arrangements of custom-made image carriers works in which he establishes connections with art history as well as with his own specific living environment. He became known for his “Duck Test”-series, canvasses organized to resemble smileys, their trendy lightness connoting a carefree attitude to life, while simultaneously referring to the icons of digital communication. His first sunsets were inspired by Hollywood movies, the sun’s immersion in the horizon mostly took place within a 16:9 or 4:3 format. The new works pick up on the form of the setting sun through the shape of the image carrier. The combination of the different colors on the raw canvas evokes spatial depth and conjures up sporadic associations with rainbows or figments of imagination.
