2014 Stretch Out and Wait, Rhythm Gallery, Taipei

 

Stretch Out and Wait is the title of a series of paintings based on a composition of extracts of traditional design patterns. The shapes on their monochrome background are derived from details of ceramics and textile designs, often from Japanese or Russian origin. These details, without the context of their pattern, become the basic building blocks for a potential new one,  as if they were letters trying to find a new word.
