Eric’s work consists of successive layers of intricately cut paper sheets utilizing a laser, thus creating a multifaceted, rich, colourful ensemble.

Mark_Wilson_contemporary_digital_art_print_pattern_Graphics_06

The Patternbank team are loving Mark Wilson’s unique and colourful digital computer drawings. Wilson has been experimenting with contemporary digital art since the nineteen seventies and has been using computers to craft some truly amazing art pieces. In 1980, Wilson purchased a microcomputer and began to learn programming, with the goal of creating artworks. This work has continued, and his computer generated works have been widely exhibited, both in the U.S. and in Europe. The computer has, in his words, the power to become a ‘democratic art making machine’. See his full catalogue of stunning digital creations at mgwilson.com

Amanda Hughen creates these delicate paintings with a series of mark-making, screen printing, rulers and freehand drawings building layers of depth and movement. The shapes and forms accumulate until they amass in one area jostling for space and taking over the page. Hughen says, “I am interested in the “loaded gun” theory of illness: genetics loads the gun, environment pulls the trigger.” Do the objects we use everyday pose danger to our long-term health and are our bodies effected by chemicals in these products? Hughen uses these questions to explore through her own work abstracting from biology, chemistry, architecture, engineering and mass-produced objects to create portraits of microscopic transformation. See more of her work at amandahughen.com

Patternbank were drawn to the work of Joan Saló, with delicate fine lines and subtle colour combinations Saló’s paintings are unusual in that he uses traditional pen and ink to create abstract yet orderly compositions. It’s nice to see the trend for a more simplistic hand drawn quality of work after so much digital and photographic imagery of the past. Saló lives and works between Barcelona and Berlin. You can see more of his work here.

Natasza_Niedziolka_Threaded_Pictorial_Art_04

Polish born artist Natasza Niedziolka’s beautiful abstract compositions are made using thread and embroidery on canvas, in a perfect combination of color, shape and texture. Rejecting the traditional guidlines of craft-art, her influences come from Dada artists such as Jean Arp. Niedziolka embraces the Dada movements spontaneous and seemingly irrational methods of artistic creation, to produce her subtle abstract embroideries. See Horton Gallery’s website for a full profile.

Zhou_Fan_Illustration_03

Chinese illustrator Zhou Fan has a distinct Japanese quality in his art and visual explorations. Fan explains ‘ My paintings are based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly.‘ Patternbank love Fan’s amazing dreamscape visions that use colour, texture and strange subject matter which create some mesmerizing imagery.
