Anne Mosseri-Marlio Galerie presents "Patterns": A group show
Installation view.

BASEL.- The work included in PATTERNS are comprised of compositional arrangements that create equilibrium, predictabilities, and cohesion. The repetitive tempos and aesthetic rhythms at play in the paintings, textiles, drawings, and sculpture create integrated unified experiences. Originating their own system of repetition, each artist embraces the affordances of pattern to articulate knowingness and foreseeability, forms of stability, and compositional strength. The work in this group exhibition reaches beyond the decorative and activates patterns that offers alternatives to the disorganization and the commotion defining a shapeless social and political contemporaneity.

Deploy the quintessential modernist grid, Dan Walsh’s paintings evoke inexhaustible compositional variations within the limitations of the two-dimensional structure. Stephen Westfall’s co-mingles the warp and weft anatomy of textiles with the tenets of hard-edge abstraction. Edda Renouf’s compositions negotiates labor, line, and materiality to confound pattern and mass, accretion and cadence. Sheila Hick’s fiber-based sculptures index rhythmic bodily rotation and celebrate the dynamics of color and the unification of texture. The brass cast reliefs comprising Michelle Grabner’s contributions fix delicate unique weavings into a hard metal topography. In each case, pattern and its repetitive formation is more than routine decoration but instead imposes emergent formations and additional logics.
