Belem Lett’s Grotto draws from multiple histories of decoration, pattern and gestural abstraction to present an environment with an internal, private logic. Grotto is a room comprised of three elements; wallpaper, paintings and a crushed quartz gravel floor. Colour, pattern and texture swirl through Lett’s works, which envelop visitors in the ebb and flow of their fractal-like perspectives.
