Overview

 

Repetition is a part of our daily lives, whether it is our morning routine or the way we make art, repetition and pattern is constantly surrounding and influencing us. When looking back our heroes of contemporary art we can see how artists are always using a variation of repetition, pattern, and rhythm to make their work more dynamic and give it a sense of movement. 

Motif is looking for 2D and 3D submissions of work that you feel consists of some sort of repetition, pattern, rythm or motif. The term repetition can be taken literally in the sense of a visual pattern of shape, color, line, etc. Or more loosely in the way that something is made through a pattern of physical repetition- for example: the way a weaver, potter, or printmaker would exemplify repetition by using the same pattern of motion and movement to create their brilliant artworks. Have fun with the way the patterns in your life can be perceived.

Overview
 

Like art, identity is perception; perception of self, of others, and how the elements in our life continue to develop that perception and identity over time. We define ourselves with every choice we make, every action we take, and every work we create. This exhibition gives the artist the chance to express, explore and question their own ideas about identity and reveal their own perceptions of themselves and the world around them. 

Tamarack's David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three-dimensional work, of any subject and media that represents the artist's own expression and ideas about their identity.

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.
