Mathamatics Patterson


Mathamatics Patterson lives and works in East New York, Brooklyn. In his mixed media paintings, Mathamatics explores a wide range of subjects, including: hip hop, religious figures, historical monuments, iconography, currency, place, and affect--particularly the feeling of triumph. His richly textured works use highly saturated color and incorporate traditional oil paint with push pins, googly eyes, coins, and his signature dollar bills. Patterson has shown his work at the SFMoMa, the Brooklyn Museum, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the Queens Museum. His work is held in private collection in the United States and the Netherlands.
