Interview with Patrick Colhoun.

'There are times when art really hits you, strikes a part of you and seems to understand your subconscious and your aesthetic needs.  When I first saw the contemporary ceramic sculptures created by artist Patrick Colhoun I was stunned by their appeal.  This is not art that you glance over; his pieces are strong, dark and edgy'.  March 2014.

''Bangor Castle Walled Garden is invaded by an army of unusual sculptures in this hands-on exhibition. Showcasing 32 works by 22 artists, ForM is a sculpture exhibition with a difference. Organised in conjunction with North Down Borough Council, it utilises the Bangor Castle Walled Garden as an outdoor exhibition space, and around every corner there is a surprise.''  June 2013.

Rise Art

Featured Artist. ‘Artist creates delicate, dark and intense sculptures with black clay and metal’.
'Orginally trained as a ceramicist, Patrick Colhoun's practice is now multi-disciplinary with sculptures and installations combining black clay, hosiery, latex, piercings and metal spikes. His works employ delicate, fragile and dark imagery, using the repeated motifs of the hollowed out torso and shell. Here's a selection of our favourite works from Patrick'. October 2012.

Darby, Angela. 'The Warning Project at The Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast','Male sexual aggression is menacingly explored in the dark bitumen paintings by Andre Stitt whilst masculine fallibility is alluded to in Patrick Colhoun’s foreboding, ceramic sculptural installation entitled Reckoning. Colhoun presents 18 fragmented heads some are complete whilst others are devoid of a cranium. Their presence manifests a sense of mortality as the empty shells descend into the white plinths that they rest upon.' 20 June 2012. Link to article here.

Moore, Tammy. Art Review of Warning! This is Contemporary Art.

'The provocative exhibition isn't for the faint of heart, but is well-worth challenging your preconceptions.'

'The entire exhibition is worthy of comment. There is no way that Patrick Colhoun’s surreal 19-part installation of latex, clay and hosiery – gimp masks with broken noses gathered to judge a headless torso stitched with red stockings could go unnoticed.' June 2012. Link to article here.

Aesthetica Magazine

Darby, Angela. 'Androgynous Aesthetics: Interview with Brendan Jamison including Warning! Art Gallery'.

'The complexities of the metro-sexual perspective have now risen to become as equally alluring, as evidenced in the ceramic sculptures by Patrick Colhoun, delicately balancing violence and brutality on the one hand, with fragility and spiritual liberation on the other.' 22 May 2012. Link to article here.

Trebuchet Magazine

Anthony, Nicola. 'CONCEPTION: An exhibition to create dialogue and duplicity'

'In this two-part exhibition spanning London and Belfast, the vibrant, acid coloured figurative canvases of Darren MacPherson are hung alongside Patrick Colhoun’s dark, brooding, somewhat disturbing contemporary sculpture. These two exciting artists come together in a mind-tingling combination which will really make your brain tick.' June 2012. Link to article here.

Cool on Demand Culture Blog

'Conception Part One' London,

'Patrick's work is strong, dark and masculine with a hint of the 'kinky' about it.  There is nothing soft about the use of black-clay, latex and nylon in his work.

His work derives inspiration from dark subject matters such as death and redundancy; and he uses  tangible, pliable materials to project these dark themes successfully,  He was the winner of the Sculpture Category in the Signature Art Awards in London in 2011.  His work is daring and controversial and I rate it highly. Put simply... this is art with balls!'. 7 June 2012. Link to article here.

Aesthetica Magazine

Darby, Angela. ' Home Grown | The F.E. McWilliam Gallery & Studios, Banbridge',

'In stark contrast to Hanna’s work, Patrick Colhoun presents Foundling a sculptural installation comprised of 25 ceramic heads situated on the gallery floor. Each of the heads poignantly represents a symbolic stage in the artist’s life. The works seem to either ascend or descend out of or into the gallery floor on which they have been placed. Colhoun has severed the heads below the nose rendering them mouth less and this deliberate muteness seems to communicate a melancholic state of reflection.' 30 January 2012. Link to article here.
