Materials + Presentation

Materials:

  • Acrylic Water-Resistant Artists Ink and Golden Fluid Acrylics. These intensely pigmented acrylic-based inks are waterproof when dry and generally lightfast. Compatible with acrylics.

  • Polypropylene material is synthetic and manufactured by Yupo Corporation. It has the benefits of extraordinary durability, non-absorbent surface resists tearing and buckling and remains perfectly flat.  The material is PH neutral, and flawlessly smooth.

Presentation: 

Panel paintings are created by mounting the polypropylene material onto acrylic panels. These 1/4" plexi panels are mounted with a recessed frame in natural wood and a polished plexi edge giving the panel painting a finished contemporary quality.

Patter Hellstrom has exhibited panel paintings
in San Francisco since 2009 at Mina Dresden Gallery, The McLoughlin Gallery, SF Fine Art Fair, SF Art Pad, ArtHaus Gallery, 5 Claude Lane Gallery, ARC Gallery, Artify It Headquarters in SF and Lennar Urban penthouse / BLU.

 

 

 

                                             

Shaped Collages 

Front mounted with plexi glass these polypropylene and acrylic ink collages are shapped and have a back frame.  These are an important development where the plexi glass face and shaped body present a fresh look with the plexi glass amplifying the inks' color, iridescence and subtle texture. The shaped work now breaks free of the rectangular format with flowing movement.
