The Interlaced Project

Welcome to the Virtual Gallery. Here you can can see the works from the Interlaced Project, and access instructional guides which demonstrate how to draw the patterns using the traditional tools of compass and straight-edge.

Click an image below to see the work, read about it and download the pattern guide.

Please note that there are two patterns below which do not have pattern guides

Interlaced is a series of collaborative popup exhibitions of Islamic geometric art by Gillian Turnham.
The paintings featured in this collection demonstrate the underlying mathematical structures upon which the patterns rest. This initiative aims to connect with viewers beyond the confines of a normative gallery setting, and to forge relationships with non-arts-focused communities to whom the work has special resonance.
