Premiere-vision-PV-SS17-New-York

The Patternbank team recently exhibited at the New York instalment of Première Vision at Pier 94 on the 19th/20th January. It was a great show with all the studios and fabric manufactures ready for the new Spring/Summer 2017 season. Whilst we were there we took the opportunity of visiting the trend forum areas.

Below is our quick recap of the key print trends that the Premiere Vision Fashion teams have highlighted for Spring/Summer 2017.

01-danielle-clough

Patternbank thought we’d share artist Danielle Clough’s fabulous embroidered vintage tennis and badminton rackets which have been doing the rounds on all the very best blogs this month. Vibrant and quirky with thick brightly textured yarns weaving their way across tough strings, Danielle’s flowers look completely at home. Not surprisingly all Danielle’s rackets have sold out after being featured on Colossal, Creative Boom, plus many other great sites so guess what she’s serving up some more and starting an online store.

01-maria-torroba

Spanish artist Maria Torroba is inspired by the great portraits of the 15th,16th and 17th century and produces these magnificent regal artworks in oil and collage, incorporating Spanish and Belgian linens, antique lace embroidered by her grandmother, ribbons, hessian and even shells collected on her travels. Torroba currently lives and works between Madrid and her farm in Extremadura, where she works as a painter and breeds Spanish horses. Her work has been shown in several exhibitions and is now held in private collections in Mexico, Argentina, London and Shanghai. The Stephanie Hoppen Gallery holds a permanent collection of her work.

01-helen-ahpornsiri

Patternbank are smitten with Helen Ahpornsiri’s beautifully delicate illustrations crafted from tiny dried and pressed ferns. Ahpornsiri has been making her pictures in the East Sussex countryside where she lives since being inspired one day to try and create a Fern Weevil she had been drawing in ink out of real pressed Fern’s. Since that day her beautiful patterns have evolved using the tiniest pieces of foliage to make butterflies, seahorses, beetles, dragonflies, moths, hares and owls. Follow her on Instagram to see her breathtakingly beautiful work unfold and to purchase your very own piece go to her shop on Etsy.

Paula_Zuccotti_A_Collage_Of_Life_Through_The_Lens_01

This project and book by Paula Zuccotti aims to illustrate a moment in time, in the lives of a handful of people through the items they touch in a day. Paula travelled the world to find a selection of people from an array of cultures, ages, professions and backgrounds. The resulting photographic images depict an assemblage of daily essentials in the lives of a handful of individuals, ranging from an eight year old in Melbourne to a Drag Queen in Tokyo.
“I felt the urge to document our current interaction with these objects. Many of the things we know about past civilisations are from insights gathered through their objects. Their tools, utensils, clothes, manuscripts and art have taught us about the work they did, what they hunted, grew and ate and how they dressed or expressed themselves. Will ours do the same?” Read more about the individuals involved in her project here, or visit her website here.

David_Bowie_Tribute_To_An_Inovator_Musician_And_Artist_04

Artist, innovator, designer, musician and visionary, just a few of the titles attributed to the late David Bowie. The rock chameleon and pioneer of metrosexuality was a trail blazer in his field and has inspired generations of music lovers and artists alike with his avant garde creativity. The Patternbank team pay tribute to this truly influential man with a collection of Bowie inspired art and photography which capture the essence of this great style icon. His presence will be sadly missed but his work, and creative influence will live on.

Rogan_Brown_Paper-cut_Pathogens_Microbes_and_Vegetal_Forms_09

Master of precision and patience Rogan Brown is the artist responsible for this collection of intricate and fascinating art works. These impossibly delicate structures are inspired by microwords, from human pathogens and bacteria to microscopic vegetation. Some pieces are constructed by hand with layers of paper which have been painstakingly carved with a scalpel, taking months to complete. The artist bases his work on the micro organisms but says “Each motif is however completely fictive and imagined; it is this interplay between the imagination and the “real” world that fascinates me, reality is transformed and estranged through the creative process which paradoxically makes the finished work more real and unique.” See more of Rogan’s work by visiting his website here.

Susan_O'Byrne_Ceramic_Collaged_Animals_05

Susan O’Byrne was born in Cork, Ireland. She began her artistic studies at Grennan Mill Craft School where she received a certificate with merit in 1991. In 1994 she moved to Scotland to take up a place at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1999 with a First-Class Honours Degree in Design and Applied Art. In 2002 she was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in ceramics, also from Edinburgh College of Art. These beautiful sculptures of animal and birdlife are created using a wire frame onto which Susan applies fine layers of patterned paperclay in a mosaic layout over the surface of each creature. Instead of creating exact replicas of particular species the artist has focused on producing human emotion in each of her sculptures. See her website here.
