Toby Paterson RSA (Elect)
Toby Paterson RSA (Elect) lives and works in Glasgow, his continuing engagement with such a perpetually changing context has informed his consideration of the spaces we inhabit. Paterson’s installations of painting and sculpture in galleries, museums and public space allude to existing sites, aestheticised approaches to the construction of architectural space and the social and political motivations responsible for creating the built environment.
Paterson's work frequently moves outside the gallery in the form of commissions in public settings. This approach has increasingly lead him to develop innovative forms of collaboration with architects and designers towards the mutual goal of adding value and nuance to the process of forming the spaces we occupy.

Paterson is a visual artist born in Glasgow in 1974. He studied at Glasgow School of Art and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, graduating from the former in 1995. Paterson won the 2002 Beck’s Futures Prize and received a Creative Scotland Award in 2006.
