In February 2008 Timothy Taylor presented 'Richard Patterson: New Work', an exhibition of the artist's latest sculpture, 'Black Narcissus/Ellwood, L-word: Culture Station (Zipper) 1B'. The work is made up of rectilinear maple plywood planes and aluminium plates that intersect to make an architectural space. Within the structure, printed images, brushstrokes on aluminium and a 1965 Triumph T120C motorcycle may be glimpsed. In order to understand the work, the viewer is invited to move around the sculpture, capturing fleeting planes of unified architectural and painting space.
