Patrick Palmer

An Odyssey
This Exhibition is looking at Patrick Palmer's work as a journey through time and presents work from many phases of his life as a painter and draftsman. Patrick Palmer early on has developed his own distinctive painting style and has refined his artistry over the span of almost forty years. One striking aspect of his work is the clarity and precision of his draftsmanship which has been compared to an Ingres-like classicism. Like the mythical heroes in Joseph Campbell's many tales, the artist/hero here heeds the call to adventure - his personal odyssey, endures initiation, trials and challenges and returns back to the ordinary world in order to give testimony of his travels. His wondrous stories are gifts to his friends and tell episodes of self-discovery and the acquisition of existential knowledge.
