ABOUT

Patrick (b. 1986) is a British visual artist. As a painter, he has had solo and group exhibitions in France, Germany, the US and the UK.  His paintings are held in public and private collections in Europe and Australia, and included in corporate collections such as Coventry Building Society and Peel Hunt.  


As an interactive performance artist, his live drawing collaborations have been hosted in galleries, festivals and performance venues including the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith, Cockpit Theatre, The Nunnery Gallery London, The Workshop Paris and Palais de Beaux Arts, Lille.


Working in two and three-dimensional mixed media, Simkins explores the transience and fragility of the real world alongside its virtual counterpart.  A sense of ordered chaos underpins his paintings, collages and drawing performances. The pattern of destruction and renewal is intrinsic to his process, whether recycling his paintings to create new works, or erasing and remaking marks in a drawing performance.
