Since June 1997, Pat has held six solo exhibitions of this portfolio in Hong Kong, at LKF the Gallery (top and bottom right) and the Foreign Correspondents' Club, during the Handover in 1997, and subsequently at the China Tee Club and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for the IMF World Bank Conference. In 1998, a private exhibition was held in London at the Anna-Mei Chadwick Gallery.

The series was exhibited during August 1999 to 2002 as part of The Edinburgh International Internet Festival. and has been exhibited at Gallery Opus, Hong Kong, frequently.

'Signed and Sealed' is a portfolio of 30 works of art created by blending extracts from the original ornate legal documents that marked the beginning and end of Hong Kong's colonial history. They derive from the Treaty of Nanking of 1842 when China ceded Hong Kong to Britain, and the Second Convention of Peking of 1898, when the area under British rule was extended by lease for 99 years.

Printed traditionally onto soft, hand-torn Terreus cotton-rag paper, the signed Limited Edition of 97 pieces have wide margins, hand-torn edges and are embossed with the printer's imprimatur.
