Pattern +

Town Hall Gallery | 26-Oct-2016
Pattern + brings together eight Australian artists who are inspired by pattern and translate their ideas via sculpture, photography, textiles, painting and installation. All humans have an innate urge to find patterns in all that we see. From when we were a child, we were encouraged to identify familiar shapes in the clouds or pick out a face in a knot of wood. The desire for familiarity in pattern has always been there. Featuring artists Daniel Edwards, Tim Gresham, Kristin McIver, Britt Salt, Mark Booth, David Sequeira, Alasdair McLuckie and Veronica Caven Aldous.

Each artist in the exhibition brings a fantastic insight and diverse response to the brief. School of Art Textile Honours student Daniel Edwards is known for his work interpreting the craft movement of the 1970s. Tim Gresham is no stranger to Town Hall Gallery - his work was exhibited during the touring exhibition Group Exchange, 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial. Now based in NYC, Kristin McIver's, new work examines personal identity and its relationship to social media.

Melbourne based David Sequeria explores the notions of language and information through colour and geometry. Proudly a hoarder, David collects books, vases, flower petals, leaves, orange domestic ware and plastic plates which are all inspiration for his work. Hill End-based artist Mark Booth is known for creating sculptures using PVC pipe elbows to create infinite knots. Local artist Veronica Aldous uses light and pattern in very hypnotic and seductive ways. Works by Alasdair McLuckie are on loan from private collection and gallery Ten Cubed.

Town Hall Gallery has also commissioned Melbourne-based artist Britt Salt to create a patterned installation on the entrance window to the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
