Monica Rohan’s paintings so beautifully depict her love of nature and highly patterned textiles, she is particularly inspired by artist Edouard Vuillard and his use of pattern. Rohan grew up in South East Queensland where her rural upbringing has inspired and strengthened a love of natural surroundings often remote, that brings with it that same sense of isolation that can be found in her paintings. The subjects (herself) are always hidden, buried in a mass of textiles or overgrown nature wrapped in a playful yet slightly anxious way almost swallowing her up. Powerful and physical at the same time her paintings are certainly thought provoking and with two exhibitions selling out she has certainly captivated a growing audience. You can see more of her work at janmurphygallery.com and sophiegannongallery.com

Pattern and print is everywhere at the moment and in particular the trainer market who are joining forces with some of the most talented designers and artists around. From Liberty teaming up with brands like Nike and Vans to adorn trainers with classic Liberty patterns to more new contemporary prints. Also designers Eley Kishimoto and artists Zio Ziegler and Takashi Murakami have added their distinctive style to the Vans classic slip-on, clothing and bags.
A fairly new company Inkkas has adopted a novel way of choosing which trainers to put into production by crowdfunding their product first. This way they can see which styles are more popular before they commit to production. Not only that they take an ethical approach to production too, crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them and for every product purchased they plant a tree. Print and pattern is not going away anytime soon and with new advances in technology it looks like it’s here to stay. Patternbank would like to think this is the begins of a pattern take over!
