THE CHARM OF REPETITION
published Wednesday, February 1, 2017
Tiles? Majolica? Bathrooms, kitchens, and ended up in a tile shop without us realizing it? None of this. They're particular details of the facades from buildings that the Australian artist Zoe Wetherall has sampled, photographed and filed.
Yes, Zoe Wetherall has a passion for repeating patterns and the ideal place where this mechanism gives its best of itself seems to be the buildings themselves. It is here that those minimalist geometries are multiplied almost by an inertial thrust, concealing a sense that lies in the repetition itself and that which evens out more works better. It is almost a visual zen exercise supported by the colors. Do we like it? Well just mesmerizing enough for us to like it? Perhaps.
