Original Paintings, Drawings & Prints
In a Unique Contemporary Style
Welcome to the Art of Patrick Goff
My work is about colour and texture. It reflects my environment and my relationship with both it and human society, All art can be deeper than its surface appearance and I hope mine does too – from the grid works which contain undertones of control to my depictions of rust and decay in the BRotS series exploiting the colour and brilliance that we see in the decay of seaside defences much as we see the brilliance in final decay of the Britain I knew as a child. Above all though I delight in the colour of paint, in the marks left by the tools used to apply it and by creating surfaces that suck your eye into and beyond the surface. Enjoy what you see on screen but scale matters and the paintings can be large enough to pull you into engagement and contemplation the way the small screen cannot. Enjoy browsing – it is free and comments are welcome. Artwork is available to buy in the gallery and gift vouchers are available too.

Written musings on making art and the results. Life in the slow lane
The routine includes the cat of course, and can provide a moment of stillness, of prayer, in the flow of the day. In the last couple of years, I have added a limited commentary (limited by the number of characters the Beeb allows) to my observations, data fed by a local weather station and observation. I am exploring how the imagery can reflect time. I have been playing with the images, merging them to show a week in one shot, and then maybe four weeks merged to show a month, and (most fun) four months, one from each season, to show a year.
my work is changing. I have started photographing the town itself, and for a while put a series of images on social media showing places I have been around the world and contrasting them with Seaford, a series labelled Seaford and Not Seaford. Now I’m looking at woodland and the Downs, (only the English would call their hills ’downs’). I am also working with images of the local harbour in Newhaven and the pollution the fishing in dusty generates. What I am seeing really is the beauty of life in this very English corner of the country, responding to its beauty before it vanishes
South Barn It has been a dry hot summer. The Barn is known for having no heating, not being wind proof, sometimes not even waterproof, and today there is one of those miserable damp misty sea fret sort of days. Perched on Seaford Head the rest of the South Downs...
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PATRICK GOFF
Very interesting work. I totally agree about the environment can inspire you or make you feel numb.
Patrick, your words are inspiring and your art reflects that… The emotional energy of the work speaks for themselves.
I am constantly amazed at your use of colour and light, the luminosity is huge.
