Patrick Haughton

Works evolve in the process of making, of constructing and assembling, drawing, painting, on canvas, board or paper. I search for a visual language, which will communicate perceptions of place and time, from time to time juxtaposing fragments of found objects and documents with graphic media, thus introducing elements of reality into the work.
Influences on my painting are many. Visual artists such as Picasso, Braque and Nicholson, Brancusi and Hepworth, are clearly important to me, as is the experience of time spent in France and Germany. In the final analysis I would hope that the work simply reflects the experience of life.
