The Potential of Pattern

Dates and times

Show Map

Sunny Bank Mills

off Farsley Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5UJ

Pattern: the underlying arrangement used to organise a surface or structure in a consistent, regular manner. This can be by the repetition of a shape, form, colour, rule or sequence. Exploring this theme, the artists and makers in this exhibition all uniquely reference pattern in their work, whether through process, inspiration or form. 

Pattern, and its repetitive, often symmetrical nature, is an integral part of everyday life. We regularly crave order and repetition, and pattern embodies this part of our visual experience. As a fundamental part of our society, it naturally provides a rich source material for artists and makers alike.

In considering the notion of pattern, this exhibition explores ideas including; geometry, mathematical sequences, dress patterns, textile design, organisation and routine, weaving structures, digital coding and beyond.

Featuring work by Vanessa Plews, Russell Hughes, Henry Gonnet, Mark Milnes, Dominic Hopkinson, Frances Priest, Charlotte Morrison, Nichola Christoforou, Nicky Cash, Jenny Haynes Pappersaxten, Nick James Furniture, Dalia James, Jacqueline James, Caron Penney and Millie Rothera.
