Showing five tessellation prints starting in early March, 2023, on Vancouver Island.
A juried show at the Victoria Arts Council, in celebration of International Women’s Day 2023, “Levelling up, Breaking Down” will run from 4 –31 March in the VAC main gallery, 1800 Store Street, in Victoria, Canada. Gallery Hours are: Tuesday – Saturday from noon to 5pm. I will be showing a tessellation entitled “Push Back”, reproduced below.
As well, just around the corner, 648 Fisgard St., on display at the Victoria Eckankar Centre, are these four tessellations:
- Lean on Me
- HU Song
- Wah Z
Printed on the show cards is the QR code, pointing to this page. This is where I explain the symmetry behind the tessellation, which can be of interest to some patrons, young and old. Especially fans of M.C. Escher. Or those learners of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, #STEAM.
All of these prints are available directly from me through my contact page, or through Gallea in Montréal.
At the Victoria Arts Council, March 2023,
- Push Back: Parallel and alternating mirrors and glide reflections, no rotations in this symmetry method. A mirror down the middle of the character showing bilateral symmetry and a glide staggering the stacks of repetition. March 8-31, 2023.
As well, just around the corner, 648 Fisgard St., on display at the Victoria Eckankar Centre, are these four tessellations. March 1 to April 30, 2023:
- Lean on Me: Lean on Me, no mirrors, no glides, no rotations, just a simple repetition, UP/DOWN, LEFT/RIGHT, the most simple of the 17 classic symmetry groups. This is usually the method taught in grade school and high school. But there are many more.
- HU Song: HU Song, a tessellation with three different rotation points, 6-way, 3-way and 2-way repetitions. No mirrors and no glide reflections. Same method as the Wah Z tessellation above. This method has turned out to be one of my favourites.
- Wah Zee: The Wah Z tessellation has three different rotation points, 6-way, 3-way and 2-way repetitions. No mirrors and no glide reflections. You can sort of see a hexagon, if you link the green rotation points around the red one. If you look at it from far, this method can look like a honeycomb, one of nature’s perfections.
- Footprints: Footprints: Boxes built with glided reflections, and in the middle of each, a two-way rotation point, different points alternating from box to box. Sound complicated when I explain it like this.
All five prints are available for purchase through Gallea in Montréal, or directly to me, this website – email me from the contact page.
