With repetition embedded within their modus operandi, these artists appear to be paying a more respectful acknowledgment to their Modernist predecessors. Some use repetition in series, some as motifs, while for others it is simply a form of process in the making of the work. However, on closer inspection, there is mischief to be had, as unexpected references inform their practices. From domesticity in the form of 70s wallpaper designs to architectural systems; from an inquiry into optics to inversions of the monumental, there is an eclectic range of concerns amongst these artists that ruptures the surface appearance of deference.
