Adrian Pritchard was born in 1973 in Lancashire and did his Masters at Slade School of Art. His underlying interests are in geometric patterns, stemming from his fascination in physics and therefore he has a scientific approach to his art.His work has always been a play between ordered and disordered states, using viscous fluids in a free flowing way.
Patterns are formed partly by design and in part by happy accident. Adrian’s source material for this series stems from decorative Islamic art. Simple forms such as the circle and the square are combined, duplicated, interlaced and arranged in intricate combinations.Ceramic tiles are also an important source material, but fundamentally Adrian is a contemporary artist, whose work explores the materiality of his medium, allowing the paint to create is own shapes and patterns through gravity and time.
