Artist Max Patté will debut his next-generation of light works in Wellington next month.

Following a standout season in London and Europe in 2016, the British-born artist will launch a limited edition series of his latest work in his adopted home town.

In collaboration with Wrestler, Patté will host an intimate showcase from August 18-19. This will be his first Wellington-based show since 2015.

Patté’s manager, Julia Barnes, says the new body of work marks both an evolution and a turning point. Following a successful career in sculpture, Patte took a new thematic direction in 2014 to explore light and colour.

This latest series presents an intriguing new combination, where the light works themselves are influenced by a strong sculptural element.

The complexity of the design of overlapping colours and light creates a sense of enigma for the viewer – reminiscent of observing phenomena in nature for the first time. Analogies include staring up into the sky and losing depth of field, or searching for perspective when looking out an airplane window.

“These new works reflect that feeling of momentary escape and a sense of fleeting or illusive beauty,” explains Patté.

“Beauty can be a singular, otherwise uninteresting form; which when repeated, creates a sense of order. When combined and multiplied, a pattern emerges that is mesmerising, wondrous, immersive…that can pull you in and play with your sense of space and depth.”
