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.

Apple Blossom Time

The super-rich may buy islands but for most some personal mobility was a blessing – but also a curse as children moved further away from parents and family support mechanisms broke down. The ‘nuclear family’ as a concept seems to be under threat. A younger generation now needs to redefine family and nationality, bearing in mind that the behaviour of Russians shows that national characteristics remain immutable. Or maybe the value of their individuality will rise, driven by porn, bestial like. above love and family to consume all notions of society.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PATRICK GOFF

Very interesting work. I totally agree about the environment can inspire you or make you feel numb.

Rena Kondogoni

Patrick, your words are inspiring and your art reflects that… The emotional energy of the work speaks for themselves.

Andrea Sheehan

I am constantly amazed at your use of colour and light, the luminosity is huge.
