Objects For Music is an exhibition of new work by British artist Charlie Oscar Patterson. Debuting a new body of work, Charlie breaks away from his three dimensional sculptural canvases, while still exploring perceived depth within painted geometric forms to create masterpieces of visual illusion.
We are thrilled to bring to you the 4th instalment of our collaboration with adidas Originals, our much loved First Thursdays Spotlight Series. We are kicking off 2019 with an abstract blockbuster that will sweep away those January cobwebs. You really won’t want to miss out on this, as Charlie debuts an entire new series of works.
The show takes its title from Canadian musician CFCF’s 2013 album “Music For Objects”; an 8 track masterpiece of electric ambience. Based on the album in its entirety, the works are an exploration into the relationship between form and colour. Each painting is an emotional response to the music, directly generated in the mind and translated into tangible forms. Charlie treats colours as musical notes, with tempo and rhythm, to elicit an emotional response from the viewer.
Charlie Oscar Patterson’s artwork is routed in his fascination with colour and minimal forms. With a background in Graphic Design; studying at Chelsea College of Art & Design, his work is informed by a structured, gridded approach. Charlie works on small scale relief paintings and large scale murals.
His 3D pieces are an exploration into the relationship between form and colour. These works are a continual questioning of the interaction of colour in a non-representational narrative. Often based on soundscapes Charlie’s sketches are an emotional response to music, translated to tangible forms. He treats colours as musical notes, with tempo and rhythm, to elicit an emotional response from the viewer. These shaped works break from the tradition of a restrictive picture plane, instead treating the composition as a complete object.
