Patternbank fell in love with the colourful abstract paintings of Natalia Black, who lives and works in Belfast, Northern Ireland and Liverpool, England. Natalia gained a Degree in Fine Arts from the Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia and later moved to Northern Ireland where she developed and established her career as an artist.

Many of her paintings are on canvas and wood but in recent years she has started experimenting with new technologies and has made a series of digital abstract paintings on metal. These beautiful intricate pieces are created by transforming the qualities of natural landscapes into their synthetic non-figurative versions.

Talking about her art, she comments: “Painting helps me to look beyond the obvious, it also urges me to:…. don’t stop playing, don’t stop learning, don’t stop looking, find that inner child … it let’s me have fun on my own. I also find it’s a nice way to make friends.”

The Patternbank team were at the preview day of the Victoria & Albert’s new exhibition Fashioned from Nature last week. A great new exhibition that looks at how nature has influenced fashion design, textiles, manufacturing and pattern, throughout the last 400 years. Set over 2 floors, the first floor looks back in history and explores the evolution of how nature has impacted fashion. The upper floor is more of a present-day look at how new designers have used nature in the design process. It also showcases the environmental aspects of how designers now are looking at sustainability within fashion. We also picked up the book that accompanies the exhibition which is also worth a purchase here.

Patternbank discovered the beautifully delicate and intricately stitched and cut work of Hillary Waters Fayle. We put a few questions to the artist to find out more about her and what inspires her work.
Can you give us a brief introduction about yourself?
I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY USA and I now live in Richmond VA, where I spend time making my own work, in addition to working as an artist assistant, and teaching part-time at Virginia Commonwealth University. I’m a fairly quiet person, and I dislike being the center of attention. It’s really important to me to be the best person I can be for the people and the world around me. I feel the best when I’m being really productive and I’m getting lots done and I’m able to be mentally present and engaged. I love to make lists, run, cook, spend time with people I love, and I love to read -although I don’t read as much as I’d like to. I also love to be outside, especially in the summer- the heat in Virginia is one of my favorite things about living here.

Patternbank are loving the work of Husmann/Tschaeni (Michael Husmann Tschaeni & Mira Tschaeni)- an artist couple that are based in Switzerland and both studied at the College of Art in Lucerne. They have exhibited between New Delhi, Los Angeles and Melbourne. They work backward, painting in layers on the reverse of acrylic glass, using different materials, such as enamel, oil colour, watercolour, crayon, glitter, and spray. It is like if two completely different, somewhat incompatible picture languages collided when they started working together. But somehow they manage to create pictures, stories, and installations together, without having to change their own individual styles. Enjoy more of their work here & on their Instagram.

The Patternbank team are once again loving Lisa Krannichfeld’s mixed media artworks that incorporate watercolour and intense pattern plays. We featured Lisa back in 2015 but spotted some of her powerful new work recently.
Lisa was born and raised in Little Rock, AR in an interesting cultural mix of a Chinese family living in the American South. Her experiences growing up in these two intermixing cultures and their traditions have greatly influenced her work, which primarily focuses on the woman as its subject. Her expressive portraits refute the traditional portrayal of women being passive subjects to gaze upon, evident in their disinterested, and at times defiant expressions. Breaking traditions further, Lisa often uses traditional Chinese ink and watercolour materials in a nontraditional uncontrolled, free-flowing way often mixed with unconventional materials. See more of her stunning work on her website lisakrannichfeld.com or check out her work at The Other Art Fair in Los Angeles March 15-18.
