Patrick Shirvington

Patrick Shirvington’s work investigates his relationship to the natural world through drawing. In completing his Masters of Cross-Disciplinary Art and Design at UNSW in 2015, Shirvington’s main area of study is the nexus between art and the natural world, believing the process of drawing is fundamental to the cognitive process opening doors to the unseen. For Shirvington, exploring the landscape through elementary observation falls short and does not open the door to human understanding. He feels that it is only through visceral surveillance, veneration and imagination can we appreciate ecology, highlighting our connection to it.
