Patrick Hüttlinger, born 1976 in Southern Germany.
My initial education focused on wood carving, spanning from 1997-2000. The following years of international travel inevitably influenced my tattoo work, which aims to enhance individual body contours with timeless and graphically abstract creations.
I acquainted myself with cultural diversities and their distinct regional ornaments, yet choose to concentrate on a more universal approach of tattooing through the usage of mathematical and geometrical designs. The application of these pattern formations derive from natural phenomena, such as the reaction-diffusion mechanism.
Principles of proportional harmony, seen in numbers and shapes, are the very definition of beauty and can be seen as the quintessence of aesthetics. Exploration and utilization of this infinite source of inspiration is significant to my artwork and personal interests.
A symbol, which first appeared to me as a carved bone pendant, has appeared twice in my life; outside the linear space-time-continuum. It has evoked an unusual sense of attraction and familiarity, yet its cultural and religious origin remains unknown.
Deeper investigations have lead me to the discoveries of seven fundamental geometrical proportion systems; being immanent in it, expressing its sense of balance and harmony and inherently express the concept of universality.
With additional synchronicities and visionary confirmations to follow, I named the symbol sakrosankt, in reference to the universal and unchangeable laws of geometry inherited by natures creations.
Sacred Geometry has the cosmic quality of being ‘light language’, speaking to us on a transpersonal level, thus being the predestined tool in my attempt to unveil the mysterious conundrum surrounding the sakrosankt symbol (which by now became the central theme point of my artistic attention).
My aim as its mediator, is to include it with my artwork, to create awareness and ultimately to bring it into being via conscious art projects which support environmental work.
These project intend to provide a collective possibility to dissolve our karmic guilt towards our unique and nurturing entity, mother earth, whilst, at the same time, induce the individual with a liberating feeling of being part of something bigger than itself.
