Woolff Gallery, London, presents a dynamic new series of paintings by artist Oona Hassim.
Predominantly motivated by watching crowds and the movement of people throughout the city, Hassim has been drawn to events, demonstrations & marches taking place in London throughout the year, resulting in a rich collection of works depicting these momentous occasions.
These oil paintings, all made from sketches on location, capture highs of the 'Royal Wedding', the mood within the camp at Occupy London. One painting even captures the moment after the storming of the Fortnum & Mason by protestors at The Anti-Cuts demo in March.
Represented by Woolff Gallery since 2002, Oona Hassim's works are exhibited worldwide. Her paintings can be found in the London Institute Collection and one of her topical works of the G20 demonstrations, March 2011, was selected for display at the 2011 Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition.
