Collection: Stephen Altena

These paintings are from a series, Pretty Things, that are based on wallpaper and textile designs.  This series is representative of my interest in Pattern and Decoration.  My source material ranges from Baroque to Ikea textile and wallpaper patterns, and everything in between.

This series presents a fanciful and whimsical depiction of nature.  The flowers and fauna depicted are modified, exploring colour and form.  They exist within a hybrid ornamental space, between abstraction and realism.
