Last chance to see a brilliant tribute to photography and painting, Sotheby’s presents a curated selection of works by Erik Madigan Heck in a stunning selling exhibition.  Approaching photography with the same eye as high art, Heck’s works capture the essence of painting through the lens of his camera.  His work is elegant and unashamedly beautiful, exploring the intersections of fashion, painting, and classical portraiture.  Working with natural light and combining in-camera effects with digital postproduction, he produces evocative and seductive images that are simultaneously timeless and futuristic. The exhibition is on until 19th May 2017 but if you miss out, try to catch the photographer in conversation, ‘Picturing Balenciaga’ at the Victoria and Albert museum or check out his new anthology, Old Future.

seb_janiak_mimesis_an_adaptive_imitation_strategy_11

These strangely captivating images are the photomontage project of Paris based photographer Seb Janiak. Named Minessis, which is a Greek word for imitation. To create each artwork Janiak scours antique stores and taxidermist shops to find examples of wings which he then photographs at extremely high resolution. The pieces are digitally edited and pieced together into flower-like forms (a sort of meta mimic of a mimic) which are then output as chromogenic prints measuring nearly 6 feet square. The Patternbank team are loving the beautiful irregular textures and colour patterns created in these amazing art pieces. See more of Seb Janiak’s inspirational work here.

Ireana_Zeytceva_Russian_Illustrated_Ceramics_1

Born in Moscow in 1957, Irina Zaytceva began her career as a book illustrator after completing an advanced degree at the prestigious Moscow Art Institute. After years in book illustration Irina became interested in sculpture and in particular she developed a desire to work with porcelain. Unbelievably these pieces are usually created without sketches and evolve during the creative process. Irina’s interest in history is evident in the characters she paints onto her ceramic bases, and after the final firing an application of gold lustre adds a magical Byzantine quality to these alluring masterpieces.

Patternbank love these beautiful botanical illustrations found on sdoshimizutumblr.com. We couldn’t find much information about them except their title SH404 illustration so would love to hear more about the artist. The simplicity in their arrangement, subtle colours with faded shadow backgrounds and other hand drawn and printed details, give them a feeling of oriental botanical plates which show great beauty.
