James Paterson – Love Is…

12.04.12 - 13.05.12

The paintings featured here are a new collection by James Paterson , created for Love is…, a mixed exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculpture inspired by themes of Love, Sex and Romance in support of the British Heart Foundation’s Mending Broken Hearts campaign.

Drawn from Paterson’s interest in pulp fiction and the over-dramatic artworks associated with this literary genre, the imagery has been re-imagined using a pop art sensibility. The figures in Paterson’s paintings have have been inspired by the original covers from ‘Love Fiction Monthly’, a monthly magazine published in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Paterson transforms and reworks them into the covers of his imaginary pulp novels, with the artist as their fictional author.
