Patrick's paintings are derived from film imagery - large scenes of interiors are painted in one colour.The rooms are empty and the light sources are exaggerated, almost to the point of domination.
These paintings encourage the viewer to piece the forms and shapes together and construct the scene for themselves. The initial impact of the paintings is colour and light, but subtleties develop as the viewer's eyes adjust. As if going into a darkened room, the information appears to unravel over time as the image slowly infuses into the viewer's comprehension.
Fleur Patrick completed her MA in painting at the Royal College of Art last summer.
She was a finalist in the Lexmark European Art Prize in September 2003.
