A new digital animation completes this small solo-show. As an MA graduate of the Islamic Art programme at the Prince's School for Traditional Arts in London, Zarah Hussain has spent many years perfecting the traditional techniques for creating mathematically precise, geometric art and then adapting them to produce unique works with a contemporary resonance across a range of disciplines.
Her latest work 'Numina' - currently on display in the foyer of the Barbican centre - combines Islamic-influenced design with contemporary digital arts, mapping animated geometric patterns onto a sculpture of tessellating pyramids.
Visible entirely from the pavement this exhibition 'Life and Geometry' is a selection of smaller, hand-painted works including some 3D wall-hung tessellating pieces (below); and all available for sale.
Additionally Zarah has created a mesmerising new digital animation (see main image, top) especially for this show featuring her trademark: infinitely repeating patterns.
Everyone's welcome to our public al fresco preview on Friday 9 December, 7-9pm. Wrap up warm!
