In the spirit of WARF's mission - to support scientific research within the UW-Madison community - we are presenting to the public a selection of vintage and contemporary patent drawings. Drawings are an integral component of many patents, helping to show how an invention looks, works or stands out from the rest. The images presented here are a mere sampling of our patent files that span almost a century and a breathtaking array of disciplines. This exhibit is a celebration of great ideas, past and present.

Poonam Rao is a self-taught local artist, practicing folk style of Indian artworks. This exhibit features Warli tribal art, Mandala-style art and Indian-themed landscapes. Warli tribal paintings date back to 2500-3000 BCE. Tribes created these as wall murals and this style is still practiced by a tribe called Warlis, residing in Thane district of Maharashtra. They use rudimentary symbols made up of circles, squares, triangles and lines to represent human, animal and all life forms. The traditional form of this painting uses rice paste to decorate hut walls using a bamboo twig as a paintbrush. Mandala paintings are concentric circles decorated using henna art motifs.

"As a retired nurse and long-time Madison resident, I am pleased to be showing my work here at UW Hospital. Painting is for me a way of life, a daily practice of challenge and achievement. I have learned from painting to trust intention and process. Problem-solving from a persistent attitude of freedom, play, imagination and intuition consistently achieves harmony and resolution." - Frank Matin Lawrence

The Five Painters have painted and exhibited their artwork together in Madison and other Wisconsin locations for more than 20 years. Each artist has his/her own style and subject matter, but they complement and support each other well. They are also passionate about encouraging the love of art in others by supporting children and youth programs such as Bridging Generations and STAMP, endowing awards at the Wisconsin Regional Artists Program State Show and coordinating regional exhibits for the Wisconsin Regional Art Association.

"All of my work begins as a bolt of white cloth. I add color using fiber reactive dyes and assorted resists. I am exploring the interplay of warm and cool as I design and stitch my work. I make work for the wall and the bed and take commissions. I am one of the most represented artists at the UW Hospital. My studio is on the near east side of Madison." - Cherie St. Cyr
