Virtual Exhibition, 2020
Taking pixels and knots as our starting points, in lockdown we break it down into the simplest smallest elements and build it up again. We have time to work out what’s important. We find that certain elements recur and by grace of their repetition they form gorgeous patterns. This show brings together diverse artists who work with patterns in various ways. They fabricate their works in silence, in solitude, in home studios and share it with the whole world online. It’s a new way of working for our strange and interesting times and this virtual version of Carpet Pages reflects that process; many of the artists will meet each other online here for the very first time.
