John Westmark’s paintings convey a heightened attention to detail and strong sense of compositional harmony that allow conceptual elements to be seamlessly woven through the narrative without diminishing the aesthetic of the work. The primary material used in his work is store-bought paper sewing patterns applied directly to the canvas. The patterns are reinterpreted outside of their usual functional context as garment templates to create a subtle

intellectual dialogue that speaks of sociopolitical issues and gender.
