In the Spotlight Gallery:Helen Smith. Pattern is constructed in a painting or photograph by repeating or echoing one or more of the elements of art, to communicate a sense of balance, harmony, contrast, rhythm, and/or movement. In my compositions, pattern was used to organize the artwork and to stimulate an emotional response from the viewer. Sometimes the patterns were painted on the surface of the canvas as a decorative motif, and sometimes pattern was used to define the space occupied by a three-dimensional form. In the photo of the 2nd century stable the pattern created by the shafts of light defined the arches and the space they occupied. A rhythm was created in the photograph by the repetition of the pattern of light. In the large paintings, various patterns were used to define spaces and create visual interest, much like Gustaf Klimt.
