” Pattern on Print is the first solo exhibition by Cape Town architect and pattern designer, Renée Rossouw. It will open on Thursday June 5 at Worldart’s Black Box gallery in Cape Town.
The show explores the graphic art that inspired the designs for her current pattern range titled Liquorice 2014. It features artworks consisting of colourful geometric composites put together as collage and then refined to create the end result.
Despite her young age, Rossouw is a respected and experienced designer who has participated in a number of international events – Li Edelkoort’s 2013 curated Design Indaba exhibition, Moscow Design Week, Just Mad Art Fair in Madrid and the Venice Architectural Biennale to name only a few.
She blames being born in the eighties, amidst bright colours, Lego and colour blocks, for her a fascination with geometry, composition and colour combinations.
The exhibition co-insides with the monthly First Thursday event during which many businesses and art galleries in Cape Town’s city centre stay open till 9pm. ”
