About This Group


Any image that has a definable 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 art in image format only and with the prerequisite that a shape needs to be present in the art, and that it is a focus of the piece.

Please note: we are not looking for landscape and nature shots as there are already several groups dedicated to them.. UNLESS THEY HAVE A PROMINENT THEME OF ACTUAL SHAPES AND PATTERNS.
. 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.
