Centered on symmetrical patterns and bending the rules, LHR Exhibitions are back with their latest exhibition Let’s Tessellate. Curated by Hackney based illustrator and designer Mr Gresty; the exhibition showcases the work of 15 unique talents.
It’s all in the name – and Let’s Tessellate focuses on Tessellations (highly symmetrical patterns made from regular edge-to-edge polygons). However, Gresty believes that the ‘rules are made to be broken!’ and this is the driving force behind the exhibition.
Let’s Tessellate is bursting with colour, shapes and experimental patterns and like the other LHR exhibitions the brief has an element of fluidity; the only criteria being the central theme.
Featuring work from:
Nathan James Page, CRISPS, Marco Lawrence, Daisy Gomme, Jane Laurie, Raiph Vaughan, Stina Jones, Simon Fitzmaurice, Lee Bromfield, Kirsty Newman, Dylan White, Freya Faulkner, Tim Easley and Mr Gresty himself.
The image on the flyer was designed by London based designer and illustrator Tim Easley – when speaking about the poster’s design he said:
“I love when things fit together, and when I think of shapes tessellating I immediately think of tiles, so I wanted to make something tangible and textured rather than just an illustration.”
“I had some spare card, so thought I’d do a hand cut piece, but keep it bright and varied, with different designs on each tile.”
“For this reason I kept the main shape as a triangle, mainly because anything more complicated would make the piece look too messy, and also because triangles are way easier to make!”
“Everything is hand cut, besides the short rounded “stubs”, which I used a Euro punch for and then trimmed down, then it’s all stuck together using glue sticks.”
The Launch Party will take place tomorrow (29th May) and will run from 6.30pm – late. The event is free and we are informed that there will be art, pizza, music and drinks.
