2.New Photographic Angle Exhibition - Patterns

     

Wednesday 17th January 2018 to Sunday 21st January 2018,
at Q4, Quorum Business Park, Benton Lane, Newcastle NE12 8EZ
Open daily from 10am to 3pm, Entry is free - No tickets required, Parking is Free.


Patterns. They surround us. We come across them every day. We have them on our clothes, we have them in our homes,
we see them in nature, we walk across them, we walk past them, we walk under them, and we probably even consume them
at meal times. Noticing these details can help us to get a better understanding of the world around us and can even help us to
develop a new way of seeing.
Focusing on different forms, structures, textures and colours is a great starting point for exploring pattern and discovering the
narrative that begins to unravel.
The photographers who have work featured in this exhibition have taken nature, architecture, art, design and more as their
inspiration. They have experimented with repetition, tessellation, symmetry, perspective, angles and magnification to create
powerful images using visual patterns.
