Patrick Butterworth

Patrick Butterworth attends Project Ability's ReConnect programme. 

Patrick is a self-taught painter with an eye for detail, using photographs, magazines or members of his family for reference. For Patrick, painting is a slow process, one of distillation, a means of seeking the truth from an image and employing a purity of vision; his paintings appear to fix the moments snapped from a camera.

I am self-taught. I have always drawn, I've always been interested in it. I usually work at home, using pencils or pastels, filling sketchbooks. I've experimented over the years, and that's how I learned. I guess I've always had an eye for details.”

Patrick Butterworth was one of our artists in residence in 2011.
