Nudes by Patrick Palmer

Erotica // Wednesday, 12 Mar 2014

Patrick Palmer's charcoal and red chalk nudes harmoniously blend realism and abstraction. In his on words: 'Whilst an element of realism is important, I try to move beyond artistic convention and avoid an image that is too predictable. Realism is not enough - what you take away and what you add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. You need to create not re-create. I believe that the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this.' Palmer has attended Heatherley's School of Art (Chelsea) and The National College of Art and Design (Dublin).
