The Free Space Project is pleased to support an online virtual exhibition by artist Hisba Brimah. Hisba’s exhibition will be accessible through our website from 17 August 2020.
Hisba is passionate about abstract art and is continually finding new ways to experiment with shapes and materials. Architecture, art history, textiles, and different cultures are among the most important themes in her art and these are continually referred to in her sketchbooks and outcomes. She has been attending the Art Box London studio for nine years.
Her work includes geometric pieces based on combinations of triangles or of quadrilaterals, and pieces with fluid lines referencing Japanese woodblock prints. Recently she has created art which explores the dynamic, rhythmic application of paint to a surface, inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock. She has also drawn on the work of Bryce Marden to create paintings of curvilinear, string like structures, which, while abstract, are evocative of organic forms in the natural world.
This is the first in the Free Space Project’s commissions for artists to reimagine works into their virtual exhibition space whilst access to their building (Kentish Town Health Centre) is limited due to the coronavirus - another two artists will follow this.
Hisba will be holding a live talk during her exhibition, which will be held over zoom and will be captioned. Please book your free space here and a zoom link will be sent to you: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mindful-transformations-artist-talk-with-hisba-brimah-and-jennifer-gilbert-tickets-115367721962
