Toby Paterson was born in 1974 in Glasgow where he is currently based. He studied at Glasgow School of Art and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Glasgow Caledonian University.
In addition to this solo touring exhibition, he is featured in the national GENERATION programme through a wall painting commission for the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and in a group show at the City Art Centre, Edinburgh. This follows his critically acclaimed Soft Boundary solo exhibition in early 2014 at the Modern Institute in Glasgow.
Toby Paterson exhibits widely internationally with significant recent shows including: Reconstructions at Galeria Mário Sequeira, Braga, Portugal and An Experiment for Total Environment (solo with works by Victor Pasmore) at Durham Art Gallery, Durham in 2013; Quotidian Aspect at Le Grand Café, Saint-Nazaire, France in 2012; Consensus and Collapse at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh in 2010.
He has also received a number of public commissions. Most recently these have included Points of Contact, a project being developed for several sites in Dunfermline in association with Collective Architecture, and Resetting, a sculptural work responding to the reconstructed southwest area of The Hague, Holland. He is also currently involved in a collaborative project with the Scottish Ensemble.
In 2002 he won a Beck’s Futures Award and in 2006 a Creative Scotland Award.
