Patternbank love the work of Australian sculptor Shona Wilson so we contacted her to find out more about her craft. A contemporary Australian sculptor, Shona engages with natural found material to create both abstract and representational, 2-D assemblages and 3-D sculptures. For over 25yrs, Shona has exhibited commercially. More recently she has also been involved with exhibiting science/art collaborations and Ephemeral Art making and facilitating workshops (from preschools to adults). Shona is the creator of the One A Day Ephemeral Art Project, which has inspired people worldwide.

“How can we care for what we do not know? My ongoing engagement with Nature’s fragments and invisible realms brings me closer to understanding the world we share. The materials themselves are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as ‘keys’, unlocking doors to memory, science, history, imagination and Spirit.The intersects between nature, science, spirit, and art are potent environments to research and play within creatively. Art making can become Ceremony.  My work is an invitation to marvel and wonder at the details within nature which I have presented predominantly through sculptural assemblages. The mirroring of the micro/macro world and its phenomenology captivates me.

Patternbank wanted to share our love for these stunning paintings by Markus Åkesson, with their dramatic scale and attention to detail in surface, pattern and texture; all things we love here at Patternbank, the almost photographic qualities seem to shift between reality and something imagined in a dream.

Markus Åkesson is a neofigurative painter on the international stage. His work has been shown in galleries and institutions in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, London, Vilnius and Stockholm. Living and working in Pukeberg in Nybro, Sweden, his home and studio are nestled in the woods where he is free to explore motives which relate man to nature and nature to the world unseen.

He is currently represented by Galerie Da-End in Paris and VIDA Museum outside of Borgholm on Öland, where his exhibition Insominia was on show.

Patternbank recently discovered the beautiful work of artist Tiffany Bozic and were interested to find out more about her work. Tiffany is a painter from Marin, California and has spent the majority of her life living with and observing the intricacies of nature. Her work on first glance is of detailed nature scenes but on closer inspection surreal metaphorical elements can be found, presenting a vision of life’s struggles and triumphs that are largely autobiographical. The subjects she paints are inspired both from extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences in San Franscisco. Over the years, Bozic has developed a complex process of masking and staining so the natural grain can collaborate with each composition using multiple layers of watered down acrylic paint on maple panels of wood. Check out her instagram here for updates on new work.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you work?

I travel to remote corners of the world, often with teams of scientists, then return to my studio to create detailed acrylic paintings on maple panels. I also host the Unlocked Art Lab at the CA Academy of Sciences. I have been showing in NYC for the past 10 years, but for this next chapter I’m switching gears to show on the west coast for a number of group shows this summer. I currently have a series of new paintings exploring the five elements of nature celebrating native PNW plants and animals, at Talon Gallery in Portland, OR. We are also publishing another monograph of my paintings this year with Gingko Press.

What creatively inspires you?

I try to spend as much time as I can outdoors, travel, my relationships to myself and those I cherish.  In other words, I’m inspired by love & curiosity.

For anyone inspired by the vibrant work of Frida Kahlo, prepare  yourself for a rare treat.

The exhibition runs from 16th June 2018-4th November 2018. Booking in advance is recommended and we’ll be first in the queue to explore her collection of fascinating belongings!

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.

The Patternbank Team were blown away by the stunning detail of these mandala works by Asmahan A. Mosleh. Infused with gold leaf accents, Yemeni artist Asmahan, shares her work on her Instagram @murderandrose, where each piece takes upward of 80 hours to complete. Using acrylic paints and drawing the thinnest of line in pen, she then fils with bright pops of colour and completes with pearls of paint, for the final texture and detail.

Patternbank were fortunate enough to visit The World of Anna Sui exhibition, at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, a few weeks back. If you haven’t managed to visit yet, we would urge you to go and loose yourself in this fabulous collection of work. Since her first catwalk show in 1991, Anna Sui has become known for creating fabulous original clothing, inspired by spectacular amounts of research into vintage fashion and popular culture. The exhibition is arranged in Anna Sui’s ‘archetypes’ including the rock star, the schoolgirl, the punk, nomads, and surfers, these motifs feature in all her work. From fairy tales and fables to Victoriana, Sui researches her current cultural obsessions in minute detail to create a different story with each collection.

Sui is especially known for the richness of her printed textiles, combining a complex layering and mixing of patterns, texture and colours. This is a must see for any textile designer starting out, or in fact, those working now in the industry. It reminds us of the richness all around us and that inspiration can be found from many cultures and fashion movements, to evolve in to something new and exciting! Don’t wait too long as the exhibition only runs until October 1st.

Patternbank thought we’d share the brilliant collage work of Brazilian artist Rodrigo Torres, well known for his expertise in carefully cutting and assembling colourful bank notes. “Money is seductive. The minute drawings on them are beautifully made, all decorated, most of them are full of colors, full of pride and depict landscapes, animals, flowers, important characters, important buildings, people working, studying, dancing, playing, celebrating, there’s no sadness, no starving people, no inequality, only the bright side.”

Patternbank love the intricacy in Australian artist Louise Saxton’s crafted reconstructions using found vintage embroidery. Working in Melbourne, Victoria, Louise uses past collections of discarded needlework, lace and other beautiful items, creating something new and wonderful, preserving the past and in her words “a silent collaboration with the anonymous original makers.” Follow her journal here, for an insight into the process of how she works and her recent exhibitions.
