Guy Patton (b. 1980, Peterborough, UK) studied his BA in Fine Art at Bath Spa School of Art and his MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, where he graduated in 2005 and was awarded the Stanley Smith Scholarship. Guy Patton was exhibited by VITRINE in 2015.
The act of painting is a fundamental aspect of Patton’s practice. Working on series of paintings simultaneously, the works inform one another and bear the imprints of this process; often without a preconceived vision or design. Deliberately and decisively transferred from one to another, acting as a means of printing, these imperfect repetitions enacted by memory form the notions of what Patton describes as a ‘psychic space’.
