Meta Meta Meta LLC is pleased to present a group exhibition with works by Blythe Cain, Karen Lederer and Zoë Wright, curated by Guy Ben-Ari and Leah Wolff. The exhibition examines the narrative potential of abstraction through the use of pattern, within a disordered domestic atmosphere. Using the still life as a starting point, the works herein present scenarios where what was once a decorative element (object) becomes a player (subject).
In behavioral psychology “Pattern Interrupt” is a technique used to disrupt habitual thoughts or behaviors, allowing the recipient to carve new neural pathways. Within a pictoral space, pattern is traditionally understood to establish a series of social and temporal anchors for the viewer. The works in this show each contain a moment where a functional shift occurs within the pattern from the roll of passive to active within the pictorial field. This move is synonymous with the show’s title, as the viewer’s habitual expectations are broken.
