I’m Neither Here Nor There is a major survey of Jim Paterson’s recent works.
‘Paterson’s work is as intricate as it is dense, and operates as a composite of many parts, Neither Here Nor There. Far more personal and interconnected than one might initially think, Paterson’s work has a self reﬂexiveness insofar as it is constantly repeating itself, with small variations, growing and mutating in different directions. The task of unifying such a massive output such as Paterson’s is all but impossible, especially considering its many permutations of the same or similar images.
This recurring imagery can be partially explained by the genesis of many of the artist’s first takes on ideas: the beer coaster. Paterson’s numerous beer coaster drawings, themselves a treasured part of the artist’s own collection, are a fascinating in and of themselves, and are sometimes exhibited en masse, pinned in tight, visually intense grids. These act as a start point for so many works, photocopied onto overhead transparencies, enabling them to be projected for enlargement, or collaged into new configurations, or empty spaces calling out for additional elements. Paterson's drawings are a set of repeated motifs that are each distinctive and searching.’ – Catalogue essay excerpt, Dr Jonathan McBurnie.
Exhibition and catalogue to be officially launched by co-curator Dr Jonathan McBurnie, Creative Director, Perc Tucker Regional Gallery & Pinnacles Gallery.
