Paul Patterson is a multi-media artist based in Sarasota, Florida where he majors in Photography & Digital Imaging at Ringling College of Art and Design. He works mainly in photography and video; but also uses paint, ceramics, ink, performance, music, and the written word to create his art.
“I see my work as a dialogue between my subconscious and the tangible world. By deconstructing and reinterpreting subjects, both through the lens and with digital manipulation, I create visual translations of my own psychology. I often find my projects taking on personalities of their own and directing themselves in ways I would never imagine. In this way, I think my art is the purest and most direct form of communication I can manage. It’s simultaneously an act of aesthetics, catharsis, and mediumship.” ~B Paul Patterson, Dec 19, 2011
