From Tartans to bar codes Hellstrom has been inspired by patterns recently. In "Quick Response" patterning was introduced via QR codes in the work and in tandem with the paintings. New work includes pattering as the next iteration.

Patterns of Control 2015 acrylic ink on polypropylene 19" x 19"

Quick Response: Interactive Woks by Patter Hellstrom April-June 2015

"Patter's paintings are alluring. Her paintings beckon the viewer to visually get lost in the undulation that is created by her use of medium. I have never known any artist to work with the acrylic ink wash on polypropylene. Her mastery of the fluidity of motion is her own language. It is very rare to find ones solo voice when so much has been done in the name of art."

"Scot Meacham Wood's Camp Citron demonstrates a beautiful medley of color and textures together in a small space that somehow makes it appear larger then it is.  He creates a welcoming Americana aesthetic that makes you yearn for summer all year long."

Installation + Film Grief Path / artist Patter Hellstrom traced the last four years of her life, marked by significant personal losses of some of those closest to her. Informed by her own Judeo-Christian upbringing balanced against a deep interest in Buddhist principles, the artist maps the psychological, cognitive, and emotional dimensions of grief through time. What are the navigational tools on a grief path? The gestural paint applied over the rationalized pencil grid reflects the emotional immediacy of each moment, and letting go of cultural expectations around each loss resulted in moments of grace and acceptance.

Gina Stepaniuk / New Views: Planet Earth, a Patter Hellstrom Visual Art project at Vedder Price LA headquarters.

Abstract views of our planet’s topography present this unusual landscape exhibition by Gina Stepaniuk. The surfaces describe the Earth simultaneously from afar and in microcosm. The artist punctuates organic compositions with light-colored open spaces inviting the viewer to ponder the alternative vantage points while engaging with the rich color harmonies used.  

MITHILA PAINTING: The Evolution of an Art Form 

The show is filled with fantastic connections between traditional and contemporary subject matter and styles.
