​Patel's work is about measuring, heavily influenced by William Coldstream and Euan Uglow. He started measuring from the age of 16. He creates still spaces, measuring  the relationships he finds within those spaces. He searches for balance and particularly form, and through measuring finds a structure, process and validity.
