Hans & Fritz Contemporary is pleased to announce Salon #3. On this occasion, we proudly present an exhibition by the artist, Patrick Morgan RCA.
The works in this exhibition analyze the role of ‘Desire’ and ‘Seduction’ through mark-making, interrogation and role play. A series of drawings, paintings, and interactive immersive artworks, which aim to succumb the viewers into a cross-reality visual stimulus.

“Whether a wisp like portrait or a dynamic figure with a shock of background colour Patrick’s drawings are always elegant and contemporary. His confident line and natural talent produce strong statements on the progression of modern fashion illustration noting the likes of René Gruau and David Downton.”
David Bamber, Tom Ford
“A rich and varied collection of progressive portraits and expressive still lives, there is something here for all lovers of contemporary art.”
