About

We are delighted to welcome Patrick Cullen, who has just won a prize at this year’s prestigious Lynn Painter-Stainers Competition, back to Highgate Gallery. This wide ranging exhibition is inspired by his travels in India, Italy and Transylvania, and also includes portraits, flower studies and paintings of the female nude.

Patrick uses oils and pastels to create an intense and personal response to his subject matter.  His work derives from close observation of and interaction with nature, which gives it freshness and vitality.  Whether he is concerned with a Tuscan view or an Indian street market scene, the colour, heat and atmosphere are all vividly conveyed.  As artist Ken Howard, R.A. has put it, Patrick’s work “speaks directly to us .…  He has the impressionist’s ability to fix the mood of a moment,… also his work has that quality which is essential to all great art, the balance between form and content.”

Patrick trained at St Martin’s and Camberwell art schools in the 1970s and is the recipient of many prizes in addition to the recent Lynn Painter-Stainers award, including the Watercolour Prize at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and prizes from the Pastel Society, the Royal Watercolour Society and the New English Art Club, of which he is a member.  His paintings are in many collections including the Royal Academy and Sheffield City Art Gallery.

When not travelling, Patrick lives in Stroud Green, and is also known for his paintings of London allotment views.
