Andrew Walker Patterson

Andrew Walker Patterson strives to capture a place in the world. A place is many things, and it is always changing. His perception of that place is constantly shifting, too. He represents a place’s appearance; but he also captures its sense, its feel, and its underlying social structures. A place is not a distant landscape for aesthetic consideration only. It has a presence, and he is embedded in it. Andrew represents this by evoking its physicality and the way that it surrounds him. Lansing Street Gallery’s collection of Patterson’s plein air paintings focus on the Mendocino Coast and the historic buildings of the Village of Mendocino
