A casual word, Patterns has endless definitions with over 176 related synonyms. Patterns have endless permutations and are applicable in understanding creation, creativity, fertilization, structural & biological engineering, weather, DNA, energy, building, baking, genealogy etc… the list is endless. Basically every single action, structure, behavior, language, material, and artistic expression is coded rooted in patterns.
Patterns is currently on view at Gravers Lane Gallery. The show explores how we visually respond to structure, and how underlying patterns fuel our actions, and reactions. The Artists represented rely on repetitive mark making, creating structural supports, color relationships, textural surfaces and more to create their vocabulary. These structural links – executed in glass, aluminum, paper, gut, bronze, wood, ceramics (to name a few mediums), all support the theme of the exhibition.
