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.
