Artexpo New York is one of the highlights of our year. The attendees know how to appreciate the art presented to them. It was a privilege to meet so many of you at this year’s show. I am excited that two of my pieces have flown to two new countries…the Philippines and Brazil! Where will they land next?
I am back in the studio, creating new work for upcoming shows in July; one at Butter Gallery in Collingwood, Ontario and the other at Petroff Gallery in Toronto.
As always, let me know when you see a Prayer Machine on my website or Facebook page that you just can’t live without. Or commission one for that special location in your home or work space.
Loved Spectrum Indian Wells!
“There Is A Joy That Confounds And A Beauty That Embraces”

THERE IS A JOY THAT CONFOUNDS AND A BEAUTY THAT EMBRACES – A Prayer Machine
JAMES PATERSON, 2016
Intangibles; fragments that knit us together, ambiguous, full of mystery. They compose us, these many interconnected systems functioning in complex ways, yet linked together in ordered harmony making us more than the sum of our parts.
My Prayer Machines are like that; teeming with varied lines, forms and colours they weave together diverse elements that create a synergy; fearfully and wonderfully made.
