Faile_Multimedia_Collage_Collaboration_NY_4

FAILE is the Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. Their name is an anagram of their first project, “A life.” Since its inception in 1999, FAILE has been known for a wide ranging multimedia practice recognizable for its explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage. While painting and printmaking remain central to their approach, over the past decade FAILE has adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to vast array of materials and techniques, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, installation, and prayer wheels. Works on Wood is currently being exhibited at the Allouche Gallery, New York, NY from Nov 15th-Dec 12th so if you’re lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood get down there and see it in the flesh.

Patternbank love Berlin-based designer Frau Grau’s painted textures of leaf and stone-like shapes which the team discovered on her tumblr page. Grau creates simple sketched drawings on natural and organic themes and then arranges them into pleasing compositions. Grau’s work lends itself to stationery and surface design with the simplicity and eye-catching colours that she uses. Check out more on fraufrau.tumblr.com
