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.

A Renaissance

A Renaissance

My processing also starts with traditional visual ideas, with looking, then progressing maybe from drawings, more often from digital photographs which I crop, process and alter on the computer before drawing to refine/define further, taking onto a larger scale through works on paper and then distil onto my larger scale canvases. The camera technology has changed rapidly over the last 30 years, become a ubiquitous tool and creating whole new areas of creative endeavour in much the way technical changes made possible so much of the work of Renaissance artists once they were able to work on canvas with oil paints.

Pigeons’ Luck

Pigeons’ Luck

I sat in the garden thinking (I do that a lot, maybe too much) and remembering the trip to the South African Delaire vineyard to see one of the most popular iconic paintings of the 1950’s and 60’s. Some say it rivals the Mona Lisa as a painting…(cough)… I remember...

Green as Grass

Green as Grass

Green is the dominant colour in the garden against which flower blossom glow, but the daisies, scattered in the long grasses hold their own in this beauty contest, the gold of the Archimedean spiral at their centres sitting among white petals that often turn to pink darkening to red at their tips. They have grown tall in competition with the grasses, thriving in competition, and the grasses themselves have started to become identifiable as they mature to generate seed heads. The biggest shock seems to me to be the inability of the dandelions to compete in this new muscular grassland.

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.
