Chinese artist, Amy Cheng, works with oil on paper and on Canvas using patterns from around the world. According to Cheng, "I align myself with the long tradition of geometric and floral ornamentation the Far Eastern, Middle Eastern, & European craftsmen have long employed. They did so with the implicit understanding that pattern & repetition, which are endemic in nature, are primal in their rhythmic connection to the human nervous system."
