Representing concepts of womanhood: Flux from Juju Papers

Avery Thatcher, the Portland, Ore., artist behind wallcovering studio Juju Papers, launched Flux, a collection that takes its cue from the shifting experiences and expectations of feminism. Flux includes four complementary patterns in a total of 14 colorways.

The collection includes "La Strada," a large-scale, textural collage of rounded and serpentine forms, made with sponge painting and screen-printing squeegees. Sponge paint, the 1990s DIY treatment, is here flipped to become an ornate, polished finish. There are four colorways available: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, gunmetal on cream, diamonds and pearls on cream.

"Women" is a wallcovering with large-scale line drawings of female profiles. It is available in four colorways: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, gunmetal on cream, gunmetal on blush.

With "Silhouettes", the large-scale collage of sponge paintings and marks made from gel is arranged in a loose scatter that can simultaneously read mid-century and punk. Three colorways are available: gold on charcoal, celeste [blue] on cream, champagne on cream.

Meanwhile, "Waving" is a billowing stripe depicting rippling curtains or fabric; it also hints at the rising and falling surf. Three colorways are available: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, celeste on cream.
