Space, geometry, patterns, and perception have long had a powerful hold on Beverly Patterson, a San Francisco-based, full-time artist and designer. Her conceptual artworks – which range from paintings, photographs, prints, and digital art – investigate and translate two- and three-dimensional optical transformations. Two-dimensional artworks explore layered memory, perception, and altered space. Three-dimensional pieces change and oscillate as viewers alter their points of view. A combination of choreographed and chance moments of discovery surprise viewers as they interact with the artwork – offering stimulating moments of thought and reflection.

Inspired by the underlying order of the natural world, Beverly's artwork celebrates the complexity that can arise from simple underpinnings of geometry, color, and movement. The consistent aim is to investigate the cause-effect relationship between the stagnant image and the viewer’s dynamic gaze.
