William Patterson is an abstract painter. His paintings contain tints of cerulean, peach, beige and yellow, and exhibit boisterous clusters, insect ropes, enthusiasm and 8-bit color acceleration.  He hopes to manipulate his lack of commitment to abstract expressionism, color field painting and minimalism into a productive 4th way that is ecstatic, yet laughably self-serious.  His constantly unfulfilled side project is Otto Mouse, a comic book that draws parallels between the history of perspective and the birth of western subjectivity. Will graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2013 with a BFA in Visual and Critical Studies.
