“Patrick Joosten’s flowing gestures are full of emotional dedication. His artworks convince predominantly with the pathos of their colors. With his acrylic paintings, Joosten takes observers to a new reality, created by his wide brush stroke, and his way of scraping one color across the next to create unique transitions.
The traces of his tools bear witness to his process-oriented way of working.
The texture of colored spaces is a special focus in his work.
The resulting stretches of painting become screens of projection for the observer’s thoughts, emotions and dreams. Abstraction seems to have grown a soul.
At times, a deep Sky blue starts a conversation with bright red structures, or an immaterial lemon-yellow run into a figure sporting a gray design.”
