Presenting sculpture based on the geometric patterns used in Islamic art, this exhibition showcases work by one of the UK’s most exciting British Pakistani artists.
Zarah Hussain is inspired by complex patterns that emerge from simple repeating shapes and echo the natural beauty of the universe in all its’ timeless forms. Her new three-dimensional wall sculptures transform these patterns into clean, minimal structures precisely arranged to reveal new ways of seeing shadow, colour and light.
