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 at 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.
