I like repeating patterns. There’s something very satisfying about the challenge of making them. I enjoy the way tiling patterns make me consider the formal qualities of variation, repetition, and rhythm - all at once. This kitten work is comprised of 24 unique kittens. All different, but all pretty similar - They tile nicely because of their similarity, but I think are interesting enough because of their difference. I also like the metaphorical 'infiniteness' of tiled patterns. Each block is a sort of window onto a plane that continues to repeat endlessly in all directions. For me, this infinite plane on paper feels like a thing so basically profound, that it inverts and become banal again and you don’t even think about it - but it’s all there – in it, embedded. That’s nice too. Like patterns are a sort of stealth way to access that kind of wonder.
