Rana Begum was born in Bangladesh in 1977, and lives and works in London. Begum studied at Slade School of Fine Art, and Chelsea College of Art and Design. Her work blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture while drawing from the urban landscape as well as geometric patterns from traditional Islamic art and architecture. She has exhibited in solo and group shows globally.
This is two works donated by the artist for The Auction. The piece stems from the installation at Cristea Roberts, No.947, 2019, a wall painting which was produced in response to the title The Interaction of Colour, which was based on Josef Albers influential art and design book published in 1963. Albers’ radical teaching was to have a direct influence on the generation of artists who followed him. The works shown in The Interaction of Colour exhibition demonstrate a simple but staggering use of colour, and trace over 50 years of Albers’ influence.
