Michael Patterson Jr. is featured in the latest Artists Looking at Art (ALA), a series created to salute the vitality of the contemporary art community in the San Antonio area. Patterson’s series explores significant memories that contributed to the person that he is today. Each memory lies behind a door that is being protected by characters that Patterson created just for this task.
“The memory explored in the painting on the left takes place at Frederick Douglass Playground in Harlem, New York. That was the first place that I remember playing basketball as a child with my father. The painting on the right was made with the thought of a special memory of an early childhood friend of mine named Charlene. The setting of this piece is based off my last encounter with her in a train station somewhere around 170th street in the Bronx, New York.” – Michael Patterson Jr.
