New work by Halima Cassell



October 10th - November 2nd
Scarab
Halima Cassell’s work is a combination of strong geometric elements with recurrent patterns and architectural principles, where she utilises definite lines and dramatic angles.
Halima concentrates on simple forms as the basis of her work in order to maximise the impact of the complex surface patterns in combination with heavily contrasting contours which are a combination of influences of her Asian roots, a fascination for African pattern work and her passion for architectural geometry and are projected through the forms she creates.
Halima manipulates form, creating dynamic tensions between constituent parts of a work. The source of her fascination with carved space is that she is able to articulate rhythmical movements, rippling and flowing across and through the surface and structure.
Halima’s work has developed its own momentum and is the engine that drives her creativity. The excitement she feels from her explorations keeps her going, and constantly leads Halima down hitherto unexplored creative pathways.
