Githinji Patrick Is Freelance Visual Artist

Githinji Patrick (°1977, Nyeri, Kenya) makes paintings, photos, drawings and nail art. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, Patrick creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

 

His paintings establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By applying abstraction, he investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

His works doesn’t reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By focusing on techniques and materials, he considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.

His works are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship.
