Patricia Cain PS, ARWS, NEAC
Patricia Cain is an artist and writer originally from the Lake District and now living and working in Dumfriesshire in Scotland.
Her work is at the intersection of both abstraction and figuration. Resonating with concerns in science, Patricia connects with the idea that the artist operates as a self-referencing system of processes, where thinking occurs through the body, and the exchange of process and energy leads to continual transformation.
Patricia practiced as a solicitor, and then after completing a PhD through the practice of drawing at Glasgow School of Art returned to painting full time. Patricia originally studied at Central St Martins School of Art in London and the University of Cumbria.
Patricia has had many solo exhibitions and has exhibited widely in Scotland and England, including a major exhibition at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow called Drawing (at) the Riverside. In 2013 Patricia was awarded an RSA residency through the Barns - Graham trust at Balmungo House in Fife, Scotland. One of her paintings from this residency won the RWS Award at the RWS Contemporary Competition in 2014.
Her most recent solo exhibition was in 2018, Seeing Beyond the Immediate, at the Lillie Gallery, Glasgow.
Patricia has won many awards, including as a 2018 Finalist for the Derwent Art Prize. Her work is in a number of public collections including, The Fleming-Wyfold Collection, Royal Scottish Academy, Glasgow Museums, Glasgow Royal Physicians and Surgeons, Lillie Art Gallery, BBC Scotland, and Aberdeen Asset Management.
