Patterson’s bio reads as follows:
“Matthew Patterson has lived all over America, from Honolulu to Brooklyn, and is currently based in Florida.
Despite being interested in a range of artistic practices he often returns to drawing as the favored method to address issues of spirituality, the body, fringe belief structures, witchcraft, symmetry, self-control and obsession.
He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and believes that, as a friend told him; “good art should be like a bible of the inner”.
