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.

Merlyn spelt with y not with an i. Yet what magic do you weave as English Merlins do. Time too weaves its magic, and meeting after over 50 years was a strange dislocation of the time/space continuum. Whilst I have come across you in the professional world as a name it...



Life is complicated. Living is a process. Plan it all you want but interruptions to the process are inevitable whether from internal failure or external forces, physical, emotional, financial. Life is like that. When an artist starts on a journey of discovery through...


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.

Andrea Sheehan

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