Patternbank love the intricacy in Australian artist Louise Saxton’s crafted reconstructions using found vintage embroidery. Working in Melbourne, Victoria, Louise uses past collections of discarded needlework, lace and other beautiful items, creating something new and wonderful, preserving the past and in her words “a silent collaboration with the anonymous original makers.” Follow her journal here, for an insight into the process of how she works and her recent exhibitions.

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.

Bloodlines, an exhibition currently running at The Andy Warhol Museum until May 21st 2017, presents a new body of work by New York-based artist Firelei Báez. The exhibition showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. Báez’s work is instantly beautiful with her gifted ease at using different mediums from abstract washes of paint to intricate drawings of botanical flora and fauna and mixing patterns along the way. Inspired by lineages of black resistance and making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups, Báez is interested in the craft and art forms traditionally thought of as “women’s work” where textiles, jewellery and ceramics is constant in her work and this in turn can be seen in her own intensive artistic labour, understanding their struggles and illustrating this within her own work.
