PATRICK at 2022NQ – An exhibition by Patrick Macaulay

Written by Larissa Wignall

Welcome to Patrick Macaulay’s debut solo exhibition where he presents a definitive collection of his contemporary works motivated by typography, street art and Americana.

Macaulay’s work is strongly influenced by his early career as a compositor arranging type for print. He uses hand-crafted wooden letters to create individual art pieces or uses wooden letters as stencils to create typographic images.

While Patrick’s work is predominantly related to letter forms it is also heavily influenced by street art, faded lettering on old buildings and worn or damaged signage and street advertising.

He uses reclaimed timber as his canvas adding rusted metal and using enamel paint to create urban art that lends itself to be viewed either indoors or outdoors.

Many of Patrick’s pieces can be classed as Americana; he has travelled extensively within the USA and has a love of American roots / Hillbilly music and sounds. Viewings will be accompanied by tracks from Patrick’s personal music collection.

But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
