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.

Recently my partner and I took a drive into deepest Devon, so deep we stood on a Hartland cliff looking at the Bristol Channel. My mother hailed from Devon, although that was south Devon. She was born in ‘John’s Cottage’ in Churston near Torquay, and one of my uncles...
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.
