Art is standing with one hand extended into the universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy. ~ Albert Einstein

In the studio....

Aegean inspired blue waves combined with the Greek mati symbol of protection figure prominently in Hellstrom's new work. Entitled Imperfect Protection, she combines art and political practice. This work calls to action elected US officials, inscribing their names among the waves of distress which are diminishing America. The artists' daily call lists are inscribed, documenting one citizens' voice spoken with urgency in our current climate.

Imperfection Protection series with waves of symbolism below blending political action through names inscribed and paint flow.

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."  

Annette Schutz, Owner of ArtHaus Gallery SF







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.”  Michele Reilly, Office Manager Vedder Price SF
