Pattern and Redundancy
Opening Reception 6 – 8pm, Wednesday 14 March
Redundancy occurs where elements of a pattern are predictable, duplicated or superfluous. The paradox of redundancy is that the surplus is insignificant yet crucial to the meaning of the whole. Although it appears unnecessary redundancy is the key to communication: without it information would overwhelm the senses. Thus redundancy is valued as precious in that it insures the relative survival of meaning.
The artists’ starting points are various: pattern and complexity theory, the changing flux of matter, and polar extremes of meaning and language. What binds them is an interest in the constancy of change. All six artists share an interest in the liminal, which lies at the threshold of fresh significance and their work strongly references drawing processes for conceptual inspiration.
