Pattern and Rhythm
“Repetition refers to one object or shape repeated; pattern is a combination of elements or shapes repeated in a recurring and regular arrangement; rhythm–is a combination of elements repeated, but with variations.” –Lucy Lamp
The use of pattern creates a kind of visual rhythm that, if used judiciously, can change the mood of a painting. I’ve added a couple of pictures to the right to explain.
Gustav Klimt was fond of pattern and used it to great effect and remarked often that the quilts in his home as a child influenced his use of pattern. The first image is a famous painting of Edith Bloch-Bauer and you can see the heavy heavy use of pattern to flatten out the body of Edith, drawing your eye to her face and hands as the “reality” of the painting and the golden, jewel-encrusted patterns that surround her act as a kind of “dress” and as a separate, imaginary space that isn’t connected to her at all.
In the image just below that is one that I drew up pretty quickly in Photoshop just so you can see the difference. Is your response any different to the patternless image?
You may prefera painting that has fewer patterns, but what’s important here is that you understand how pattern changes your response.
