She’s described as an ‘urban romantic’. Bangladeshi-British artist Rana Begum – whose works are reminiscent of geometric patterns found in Islamic art – creates installations and minimalist works that appeal to both the emotional and the intellectual. In her first solo show at a public institution, Begum presents a series of engaging abstracts that explore variations of light, colour, material, movement and form. Says the press note for the show, ‘Often bringing a potentially infinite order to her works, Begum skilfully gives physical form to fleeting moments of aesthetic wonder.’ Here’s your chance to view these wonders on a gallery wall.
