This piece, entitled "Rapunzel 3" by Jennifer Steinkamp is a prime example of using pattern in art. Her use of repeating colors, lines, and shape creates a sense of unity in the piece and a tranquil feeling. This is emphasized by the organic and natural subject matter of the work. In addition, her use of pattern in the direction of the piece, bringing the eye gradually and gently towards the bottom left of the work, adds to its calming nature.
