Grids, Patterns, Structures and Networks


Artist Lesley Kice Nishigawara

In this piece, Lesley made both stairs with donations from Berkeley Ergonomics using wood pieces.  The grey stairs are padded with the remnants of our soft 500g Merino wool! We appreciate the redirection of all discards that improve our footprint on Earth. 

In her exhibition at the Irvine Fine Arts Center, Lesley Kice Nishigawara adds another layer of complexity to these real life repetitions by abstracting them through time and human interaction. Repetition gives us a sense of familiarity and comfort such as when we see patterns or hear sounds over and over again. Repeated things can become so familiar that we don’t notice them anymore.
