PATRICK PALMER

FIGURATIVE

Generally considered one of the Uk’s leading figurative artists, specializing in the female form - subtle, classical nudes in oil, red chalk, graphite and charcoal.

STATEMENT

“It's very important not to just fill a painting in and in my opinion what transforms a picture into a work of art, is the decisions taken along the way – playing down or omitting unimportant bits and focusing on the more important areas. This way you can change the balance of the image – detail from less interesting parts do not compete with the more important parts. I have learnt that the mind tends to fill in blank parts if it is given just enough information and knowing the moment when you get to this point is key. The less-is-more principal.”
