About
Daniel Pata's paintings explore the extremes of landscape, ranging from coastal environments to arid regions of the outback such as Mutawinjti, the Flinders and Macdonnell Ranges. Much of Daniel´s work is painted directly from the subject, "en plein air", on his recent painting trips to the more remote areas around Alice Springs.

Daniel Pata regularly travels on painting trips within Australia, and pre-covid spent time drawing and painting in France, where he has researched aspects of Cézanne´s pictorial elements in painting, which have significantly influenced the nature of his work.

I respond to the differences of light, shade and colour giving distinction to various places. Added compositional factors create an alignment with abstract qualities that interest me.
