Joyce Kozloff has engaged in a love of pattern and art throughout her long career. A founder member of the Heresies publishing collective and an originating figure of the Pattern and Decoration movement Kozloff’s patterned paintings comprise of hand painted glazed ceramic tiles and pieced silk wall hangings. From 2013-2015 inspired by recent travels along the silk route she returned to the Islamic star patterns that influenced her early work using these to create new reimagined patterns, expanding the scale and infusing elements from previous projects. The result is a hypnotic mix of patterns that tessellate and merge to create stunning compositions of vibrant colour.

Our_Exquisite_Corpse_Beaded_Skulls_01

‘Our Exquisite Corpse’ teamed up with the Huichol people of western Mexico to produce these intricately beaded skulls. Each of the heavily beaded pieces has been decorated by various artists from the Huichol, using traditional symbols and designs arranged within the patterns, making every skull a completely unique piece of art. The Huichols are decendants of the Aztecs and believe in the Sun God, ancestral spirits and four principal deities – Deer, Corn, Coyote and Eagle. The Sierra Madre Mountains are their home and the Huichol have a long history of creating beaded art, which is a treasured part of their culture. Each skull is cast from resin and hand beaded onto a layer of wax. See more from ‘Our exquisite Corpse’ on their website.

Artist, designer and set designer, Cilla Ramnek has worked on many commissions from stunning floor coverings made of glass mosaics to creating artworks for various cafes and restaurants in Stockholm, Sweden. We love the way she mixes pattern and colour, experimenting with scale with references to traditional folk wear, fair isle and knitwear patterns but with a modern twist. You may also recognise her work for Ikea with her skill for pattern making commissioned for rug and fabric designs. Her talents don’t end there with a couple of publications on interiors and craft and knitwear designs. Check out all her achievements at cillaramnek.com
