Patternbank met Carina Sohl at the highly creative experimental zone of Maison D’Exceptions back in February 2017 at Premiere Vision and were in love with the delicate beauty of her craft, mixing nature and eco-friendly technology, Carina transforms her wild gatherings into unique botanical patterns. Carina developed her craft from combining a love of nature with the material leather, discovered on a course back in 2006. The result is beautifully detailed and intricate patterns, each unique in their fragile leaves that are captured only once, to create one-off designs. Carina has collaborated with brands like the luxury fashion house Loewe and Berluti where her designs have been used on dresses and wallets. Follow her journey here on her Instagram account and on her website here.

Dries Van Noten’s Fall 2017 Collection at Paris Fashion Week was a dazzling retrospective of some of his favourite prints from Chintz to Japanese Kimonos and mezmerizing geometrics, all re-worked into a collection of fabulous dresses. This was Dries 100th show and featured models that walked the catwalk for him back in 1993, a strong and lasting image of powerful women in powerful prints.

Bunnie Reis is a “natural storyteller, time traveler and lover of all that is us, living in a world filled with magic and imagination.” From her Cosmic Animal Gloves, a Patternbank favourite, where she plays with the idea of old and new, transforming old leather gloves with visual symmetry and cosmic references to spirit animals. To her paintings, which are filled with magic and imagination, her work is constantly individual. Check out more of her work on her website and Instagram.

01-okuda-san-miguel

Patternbank are loving the vibrant geometric work of multidisciplinary artist Okuda San Miguel. Okuda is based in Madrid, where you can see many of his pieces on rail-roads and abandoned factories, instantly recognisable from his particular style. Often using structured patterns that could be categorised as Pop Surrealism, his work blends multicoloured geometric architecture with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals and symbols that encourage reflection. His work can be seen in streets and galleries around the world.

Writer and artist Christopher Russell works in mixed-media to create these mysterious and sometimes dark artworks. Working from his studio, a converted garage just outside Los Angeles Russell begins by capturing photographs of ruined and abandoned spaces or wild landscapes and then manipulates them digitally before scratching patterns and images into their surfaces with a razor.

Susan_O'Byrne_Ceramic_Collaged_Animals_05

Susan O’Byrne was born in Cork, Ireland. She began her artistic studies at Grennan Mill Craft School where she received a certificate with merit in 1991. In 1994 she moved to Scotland to take up a place at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1999 with a First-Class Honours Degree in Design and Applied Art. In 2002 she was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in ceramics, also from Edinburgh College of Art. These beautiful sculptures of animal and birdlife are created using a wire frame onto which Susan applies fine layers of patterned paperclay in a mosaic layout over the surface of each creature. Instead of creating exact replicas of particular species the artist has focused on producing human emotion in each of her sculptures. See her website here.

01-The-Fabric-of-India-Victoria-and-Albert-Museum

Time is running out to visit The Fabric of India, a fabulous exhibition at The Victoria Albert Museum which ends on 10th January 2016. The exhibition was highlighted by Vogue as a must-see and we would agree, if your a fan of Indian textiles like The Patternbank Team then you won’t be disappointed. With around 200 objects many being brought out of storage for the first time and the first major exhibition to explore the dynamic and multifaceted world of handmade textiles from India, spanning from the 3rd century to the present day this truly is a gem of India’s rich textile tradition. Particularly interesting and beautiful were some of the more utilitarian fabrics that show the sheer brilliance of India’s craftspeople. The exhibition is organised by curators Rosemary Crill and Divia Patel. Go check it out and the V&A is always a delight in itself.

01-monica-rohan

Monica Rohan’s paintings so beautifully depict her love of nature and highly patterned textiles, she is particularly inspired by artist Edouard Vuillard and his use of pattern. Rohan grew up in South East Queensland where her rural upbringing has inspired and strengthened a love of natural surroundings often remote, that brings with it that same sense of isolation that can be found in her paintings. The subjects (herself) are always hidden, buried in a mass of textiles or overgrown nature wrapped in a playful yet slightly anxious way almost swallowing her up. Powerful and physical at the same time her paintings are certainly thought provoking and with two exhibitions selling out she has certainly captivated a growing audience. You can see more of her work at janmurphygallery.com and sophiegannongallery.com

Growing up in Little Rock, AR, Lisa Krannichfeld experienced an eclectic mix of both South American and Chinese cultures. This has influenced her style where she combines traditional Chinese ink and watercolours but applies them in a contemporary, less controlled way. Her subjects being primarily women, Lisa’s soft and watery use of ink gives her portraits movement and expression. With the added dimension of bold oriental patterns in each of her paintings, this contrast of styles highlights their etherial femininity. See more here.
