Breaking Through 30" x 60" 

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.

Installation + Film Grief Path / Bay Area-based 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

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. Her intangible vision of our geography fluctuates between those aerial views of landmasses and material under a microscope. 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.  The thirteen works of various sizes will be on view throughout the common areas of the law offices nineteen-floor location in Century City. Although not open to the general public, Stepaniuk’s art will add sense of vibrancy and dimension that invites the staff and visitors to take a moment to observe and contemplate these intriguing images.
