As Patrick’s childhood and teenage years were spent in India, it is perhaps no surprise that a Southern Asian aesthetic is expressed in his work. As on a highly decorated sari, patterns repeat and echo within each composition.

The work represents the three cultural periods of the artist’s career – India (1965-80), England (1980-95), and New Zealand (1996-present). Living in three different countries has influenced his work profoundly and his art has been shaped and developed in directions related to each culture. The work brings together several disciplines in art making, and has strong cross cultural links. It excites, challenges, and extends cultural experiences and which connects with our people, place and identity.
