Pattern Woman #9 by Donald Kolberg
Title: Pattern Woman #9
Desc: "Pattern Women" is a series of my mixed media paintings of women where I use sewing pattern templates as the underlying support on watercolor paper. In these works I bring a living quality to flat inanimate patterns by turning the original shapes into organic forms without the use of actual human figures. I create a literal transformation in which a sewing pattern for a sleeve becomes a leg; a leg becomes a torso and other template forms are transfigured into a variety of exploited images. My placement of the original templates along with the enhancement of the original template direction lines and arrows, augments the works spatial qualities. I paint the surface with multiple layers of transparent and opaque acrylic washes.
