Notes


Rana Begum’s new series of paintings is developed from the overspray from daily work in the studio. Each spray can is tested before spraying, so the painting evolves and changes over time. The chance element, the layering, the random rhythm is part of the spontaneous approach this series of work.

The work of London-based artist Rana Begum distils spatial and visual experience into ordered form. Through her refined language of Minimalist abstraction, Begum blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. Her visual language draws from the urban landscape as well as geometric patterns from traditional Islamic art and architecture. Light is fundamental to her process. Begum’s works absorb and reflect varied densities of light to produce an experience for the viewer that is both temporal and sensorial.
