Halima Cassell is widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading young talents. Influenced by travel in Asia and the Far East. Her most recent work explores new material, non-geometric forms and a dialogue between her sculpture and ecclesiastical art and architecture.
A showcase of the work of Halima Cassell, an artist whose multi-cultural background spills out onto her work. She includes strong geometric elements and architectural principles. She uses heavily grogged clay that allows her to work on a large scale. This exhibition shows pieces that focus on her Asian roots but combine with her fascination for African patterns.
‘Dreams Made Manifest’ is Halima’s largest and most ambitious exhibition to date and includes work of different materials, scales and approaches whilst still incorporating the lines, curves, facets and planes that make it unmistakably hers.
