An Exploration of Colour and Pattern
by Mary-Jane Griggs
15 June to 10 July 2021 OFFICIAL OPENING: Friday 25 June, 4.30 to 7.30pm
I’m drawn to pattern and colour in painting. Pattern has been burdened with a poor reputation through the history of C20th Modernism mainly because many critics and other artists perceived it as frivolous, domestic, feminine and not a serious art pursuit. This is despite that much of C20th abstraction had no subject but the movement or colour of intersections of marks that could be read as patterns. The difference is they were done by blokes.
