EQUALITY UPENDED GOLDEN RULE above and EQUALITY UPENDED below (Both diptychs 48" x 26")

Arc Gallery San Francisco

Equality Upended is inspired by the use of mirroring as a means to create empathy and build relationships. Both efforts are highly valued by the artist. Hellstrom's new work relates to the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science (Stony Brook University) focus on communication and empathy. Adding elements of inequality, the coloration is drawn from complimentary opposites. Precise graphite under drawings contrast with the flowing gestural inks at the surface. 

These works track Hellstrom's year-long political activity in which she explored political voice in effort to build equality within a national vision. Recognizing that binary choices honored without depth of understanding reek havoc, a reality played out as our national dialog centered on lies and inequality. Presented in the age-old diptych format, Hellstrom contrasts tradition with new media. In this case the two panels create a horizontal equal symbol turned on end vertically.

GALLERY | QR: Interactive Works by Patter Hellstrom 

"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."

CURATORIAL PROJECTS | Corporate . Museum . Gallery

CORPORATE PROJECT I first worked with Patter Hellstrom Visual Art when Vedder Price, an international general-practice law firm, selected Patter’s work for the second quarterly art installation in our San Francisco office.  Patter and Paul also worked closely with us to plan our first client/artist reception, which featured Patter’s works.  When we opened our Los Angeles office, we engaged Patter Hellstrom Visual Art to curate its quarterly art installations.  Patter and Paul have been outstanding art partners offering a variety of works from local artists, attending to every detail, and providing beautiful collateral material to accompany each installation.  I highly recommend them.”
