Limited Edition, cloth-covered book beautifully presented in a printed hard slipcase, published in an edition of just 500 copies. Matters of Life and Death is a limited-edition publication documenting the accomplished and haunting recent paintings of celebrated Dallas-based British artist Richard Patterson (b.1963). An engaging introduction by Paul Moorhouse, Senior Curator at the National Portrait Gallery, London, discusses the dynamic and complex relationship between figuration and abstraction in Patterson’s oeuvre. In his essay, art historian James Cahill explores the subjects of portraiture and personae within the artist’s works, while curator and critic Jane Neal navigates ideas of gender and sexuality in his practice, taking us into the realms of fetish and the male gaze. Features a selection of works executed between 2013 and 2016, many of which are published here for the first time.
