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.
Pattern can by rhythmic, opulent, or meditative. It can also be a master of disguise.
Town Hall Gallery has invited four artists from the current exhibition Pattern + to talk about the influence pattern has had on their work. Each artist translates their ideas via completely different media - installation, sculpture, photography and textiles.

Held in conjunction with our exhibition Pattern +.
Pattern + highlights both artworks and design-based works that celebrate pattern. Whether it be finding symmetry and repetition in nature or investigating computer generated algorithms, this exhibition will have viewers seeing patterns within their own environment.
Pattern + references the history of various iconic patterns as well as artists who are creating their own language within pattern. Featuring a wide range of artists and designers, Pattern + will showcase textiles, painting, photography and installation.
