SFA Projects presents The Elements of Pattern and the Spaces in Between, a group exhibition of works by Danielle Dimston, Patricia Fabricant, Gordon Fearey, Russell Floersch, GJ Kimsunken, Sirikul Pattachote, Benjamin Pritchard, Christopher Stout, and Jason Yung. The exhibition considers the elements of patterns by presenting contemporary works featuring line, form, texture, color, and space.

By isolating each of the elements that traditionally combine to produce patterns the presentation may, as a whole, be viewed as a pattern in itself, where visitors may step inside the pattern while contemplating the marks and forms that comprise it.

The exhibition also looks at patterns in a behavioral sense, and highlights the visual language patterns employed by each artist that help to define their studio practice and identity. Each of the participating artists have a consistent thread — a studio pattern — that ties one painting to the next and to all of the paintings before them, culminating in what can firmly be described as a body of work.

This deconstruction and reconstruction of pattern provides an exciting opportunity for meditative contemplation of simplicity within complexity
