Exploring notions of space Julie Mehretu creates large-scale works by building layers of acrylic paint overlaid with mark-making in pencil, pen and ink. Architectural and urban planning designs form the under current of Mehretu’s paintings, where complex and fast moving lines represent so well our over populated and somewhat frantic environments of the 21st century. Mehretu was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and lives and works in New York. You can see more of her work at whitecube.com

Kowalskivision_photographic_prints_pattern_01

The Patternbank team saw these inspiring photographic images featured on Kuvva. A real visual mix of conversational & photographic distorted prints that are trending heavily at the moment.

These inspiring pieces are the work of Polish photographer Peter Kowalski who is currently based in Kraków. This project named ‘Untitled 2013’ looks at how the city of Rome has changed and grown into an incredibly busy and complex metropolis. Kowalski explains, each image consists of 3 to 5 photographs taken at different times and represent different architectural periods. Put together they dance in an unexpectedly symbiotic way, co-existing in a mosaic of shapes and colours. See more of his inspiring work at kowalskivision.com

Jenny_Odell_Photographic_Collage_Groups_11

San Francisco based artist Jenny Odell facinates and inspires with her collection of satallite view art. With a MFA in design from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in English Literature, Odell has featured work in the Google Headquaters and Les Recontres D’Arles in France, and has appeared in numerous magazines and publications. ‘In all of these prints, I collect things that I’ve cut out from Google Satellite View,-parking lots, silos, landfills, waste ponds. The view from a satellite is not a human one, nor is it one we were ever really meant to see. But it is precisely from this inhuman point of view that we are able to read our own humanity, in all of its tiny, repetitive marks upon the face of the earth. From this view, the lines that make up basketball courts and the scattered blue rectangles of swimming pools become like hieroglyphs that say: people were here’. Feast your eyes on more from her portfolio on her website.

A crumbling 18th-century flat in the middle of Barcelona is home to architect Benedetta Tagilabue and her two teenage children, a dog and a parrot. Benedetta founded EMBT with her husband, the late architect Enric Miralles. The home is so dramatic with its light filled rooms, vast ceilings and exquisite detailing in patterned tiles and layering in distressed walls. For more about this stunning apartment see Dwell.

Hand drawn using metallic inks on velvety black paper, Mary O’Malley captures complex detail and creates a new world of hybrid chandeliers, curious bouquets, dense gardens and imagined landscapes. They evoke images of intricate lace patterns for us and have an almost embroidered quality to them. Her inspiration comes from botanical illustration, nature, decorative art, architecture and textile patterns which is truly evident in these beautiful decorative drawings.
