Texture is defined as the visual or tactile surface characteristics and appearance of something. Texture informs our interpretation of the visual world and provides meaning. It helps us to identify what we are looking at.
It’s no wonder that so many artists are enamored with texture. Exploiting, manipulating and fabricating surfaces. I am especially drawn to the dissonance that can be created between materiality and perception when one is not quite sure what she is looking at.
