“Whether a wisp like portrait or a dynamic figure with a shock of background colour Patrick’s drawings are always elegant and contemporary.
His confident line and natural talent produce strong statements on the progression of modern fashion illustration noting the likes of René Gruau and David Downton.”
David Bamber, Tom Ford
“A rich and varied collection of progressive portraits and expressive still lives, there is something here for all lovers of contemporary art.
For this decade-defining body of work.”
