DESCRIPTION

Whilst sounding like a mantra, Repeat. Restate... Reiterate contains a pause.
Repetition has long been employed as a powerful tool across all art forms to convey emphasis and exaggeration but equally and importantly as a means of exploration. Used to create mood, patterns and rhythm or to expose subtle nuances and insights, repetition has long been used by artists to firmly convey an idea or conversely to reinvestigate an idea in search of a seemingly elusive answer.
Repeat. Restate... Reiterate searches for the inspiration, and pays homage to the dedication of practice, that drives artists to keep investigating an idea and in turn, revealing it anew.
Do I have to repeat myself? The answer, it would seem, is yes.
