.
Any image that has a dominant shape or pattern as a main focus or theme of the work can be submitted to this group. Anyone who shares an artistic appreciation for simple things that we might pass by in our world on a day to day basis, is welcome to join this group. We accept any art as long as the shape/pattern is PROMINENT/DOMINANT and in some respect remarkable and distinctive. After some consideration the hosts have decided to exclude mandalas from the group, and we will also be rejecting wallpaper/‘cut and paste’ style repetitious patterns.

Please note: we are not looking for landscape and nature shots as there are already several groups dedicated to them, and similarly general abstract works with no particularly dominant shape/pattern will be rejected, UNLESS THEY HAVE A PROMINENT THEME OF ACTUAL SHAPES AND PATTERNS.

Dictionary.com defines these two as:
A Shape: is all the geometrical information that remains when location, scale and rotational effects are filtered out from an object.
Simple two-dimensional shapes can be described by basic geometry such as points, line, curves, plane, and so on. (A shape whose points belong all the same plane is called a plane figure.) Most shapes occurring in the physical world are complex. Some, such as plant structures and coastlines, may be so arbitrary as to defy traditional mathematical description – in which case they may be analysed by differential geometry, or as fractals.
The quality of a distinct object or body in having an external surface or outline of specific form or figure. This quality as found in some individual object or body form: This lake has a peculiar shape. Something seen in outline, as in silhouette: A vague shape appeared through the mist.
.
A Pattern: is a type of theme of recurring events of or objects, sometimes referred to as elements of a set. These elements repeat in a predictable manner.
A decorative design pattern, as for wallpaper, china, or textile fabrics, etc.
Visual patterns are very common such as simple decorative patterns (stripes, zigzags, and polka-dots). Others can be more complicated, however, they may be found anywhere in nature and in art.
