Texture and Pattern
is either simulated- Made up or real- imitated. It is not just <><><>. It is repetetion of things, colour dots, sounds, marks etc…………Durer’s
also is either simulated or real,authentic. Texture does not always work as a pattern although a pattern can suggest texture. Durer’s texture is an illusion when applied to a 2 dimensional surface(painted or drawn). IT IS AUTHENTIC WHEN USED ON A 3 DIMENSIONAL SURFACE SUCH AS SCULPTURE. Texture in effect is the way a surface appears to feel on a flat pictorial plane (paper).
Texture, Notice how Van Gogh portrayed nature. Texture is sometimes suggested as in the pedals. They are see through. What do you think they feel like?
attern/Texture - Positive/negative
SEE ALSO POSITIVE/NEGATIVE
Pattern / Texture - Thru Positive/Negative
- Students will;
a) use positive / negative space or shape to fabricate an animal/mask ala Durer’s, “Funny Beast”
b) will use pattern/texture to define the animal /mask
a) Pattern, intro and demo- Intro to pattern simulated and real, where found in the real world, uses in real world and in the simulated world Cartoons & Graphic novels. Demo sketch different cultural patterns and simulated patterns. Authentic and simulated pattern natural and man made
b) Texture, intro & demo- intro to texture, what it is, where it is, uses, benefits & negatives. Real texture and simulated texture. Demo create simulated texture.
Demo Positive/ negative shape/space
Combine to create pattern - Escher Texture - Durer and mask making clowns Inuit Indian design,Tie into positive negative.
c) Examine “Funny Beast” . What is seen? what is used? what was Durer thinking?
d) Students to create a beast based upon real animals. To be drawn in H pencil then inked ala Durer.
e) Sketch using geometric shapes to build proportions and scale “DEMO”
SK- thumbnails of ideas - five for mask/five for animal
white inking paper, h, Pencils, Ink and Pens with drawing nibs.
Albrect Durer, Matisse,MC Escher, Masks, Inuit Indians - Skulls,Mexico
a) tie in to objectives- pattern & texture
b) does it move, does it breath
c) does simulations seem real or just decorative.
Adendum: to further a picture from students patterns may be added as the Metropolitan tile or a mask as long as pattern and texture are prominent in the piece.

Manet the power of suggestion so, what do you think they feel like?
Photo , can you feel the breeze,the sand or powder?
Slipknot and an Iriqouois Indian mask - wood and copper - copper may have come from Europeans.

Matisse used patterns extensively.
Matisse - Line, shape,color and pattern
An early Cubist try by Matisse
Notice the flatness of this painting.
Paul Cezanne - Shape or color as Pattern
deals with things that are
be they colors shapes form words sound or textures.
deals with the
illusion of feeling or touch
in paintings. For sculpture it is they way things, objects feel — rough, smooth, pebbly, bumpy and on. Paintings do have texture and for some contemporary painting texture is very important. It is called surface. The painting above by Janet Fish uses illusion or imitated texture. Below the painting by Peale uses the same concept of texture. They are divided by well over a hundred years.
Notice the reflections on the coffee pot. What is the texture implied there?
Andrew Wyeth was thought of as a super — realist although his technique is anything but. These drawings are done very quickly and uses many scribbles and marks.
Here Damien Hirst exhibits his Skull. The texture of the skull has been changed by the addition of jewels. Is he saying something about death or texture? Knowing Hirst, probably not.
Notice the simulated texture on the sculpture. The hair and the drapery are heavily worked.
This painting uses great amounts of pattern to suggest richness and the texture of the fur and men's clothing and the reddish shirt being reflecting the light.
In these cubist paintings by Picasso and Brague use repetition but it does not read like pattern. There is a surface texture though accomplished by brush strokes. This new type of painting was called Cubism.
Cowboy boots have always used patterned or tooled leather and applications of patterns on textured leather. Also they would use texture against texture to great unbelievable boots.
An Andrew Weyth study of trees in watercolour.
Theibaud's texture is implied both by contoured brush strokes and colour that suggests in our brains, soft sweet smelling marange. The same is true of the cupcakes below.
The use of texture and suggestion of pattern are used to create a painting that is flat and not flat, that in fact the paintings are to be seen as real objects.
Matisse cared nothing for texture although pattern was another ball game. He used pattern big and small, to move the eye through the painting. Also to flatten out the space, to flatten the depth, to confuse the viewer much like cubism did and to have you ask, " What am I looking at ". For Matisse the answer was always decoration.
Durer, watercolor grass

Ed Ruscha used texture to help explore the use of visual and word.
