Betty Cleeland

Betty Cleeland’s current work is an exploration of patterns and schemes found in the world around us: in architecture, in nature, and especially in textiles. The uniting thread in all of the work is color and pattern and how our perception of color depends on the adjacent colors. She uses color in her work as a visual construct that appears random but that in fact is based on careful study and perception.
