Patrick shares how solitude is vital for his art practise and how he is a detective on the hunt for aesthetic beauty and resonance.

In Sophia Pauley's bright, textural paintings, she takes inspiration from the urban environment; with shapes and lines stemming from architectural environments associated with water. Combined with her experience of moving through these spaces, she creates a sense of flow in her work. With the use of bright tones and different textures and mediums, Sophia hopes to energise viewers by the sense of movement within the works.
