Currents

LIM GALLERY | San Francisco
Currents: Patter Hellstrom
July 15th – September 15th 2013

Currents is an exhibit of abstract and prismatic works by San Francisco based artist Patter Hellstrom that unlocks the flow of color and emotion. Through acrylic ink on a slick polypropylene surface, she walks the tight rope between balance and chaos. The artist’s loose brushwork and luscious color palette are offset by subtle centerlines that guide and anchor the flowing pigments. Hellstrom engages stability and a meditative moment within each piece. This relates to the stability one searches for while traversing through the twists and turns of daily life. Informed by her installations, Hellstrom’s paintings evoke a sense of detachment among a host of competing powerful forces. Hellstrom’s loose and confident brushwork emphasizes the beauty of a simple stroke. Coupled with her liberal use of vibrant colors, Hellstrom’s works recall calligraphic traditions that inspire the artist. She studied brush painting with a master painter in Nantong, China. India also influenced her palette, as she traveled to Bihar as a guest artist at the Mithila Art Institute, 20 miles from the Nepal border. Subsequently, both regions and cultures have made a lasting impression on Hellstrom’s art practice.
