pattern and effect
pattern and effect is an exhibition of new and existing works that explores the relationship between surface and volume.
The works in the exhibition while utilising a variety of materials focus on glass, through neon and mirrors. They emphasise the volatility of neon and the fluidity and fragility of glass. The use of neon continues Van Hek’s longstanding engagement with the medium. Primarily through the use of neon, he explores the potential of light to talk about a range of ideas including impermanence, transition, spirituality and ephemerality.
