Toby Paterson makes paintings, wall paintings, reliefs and constructions which explore the relationship between abstraction and reality. He has a keen interest in post-war modernist architecture, which he deconstructs both materially and politically, developing a practice in which some works are almost understandable as architecture, while others are expressions of purely abstract form.
The exhibition opens on January 23 and runs through March 28, 2010.
