Virtues of Unity Book by Halima Cassell
An installation representing virtues of humanity by Halima Cassell
A publication about "Virtues of Unity" with a essay by Andrew Lambirth and artist statement by Halima explaining the concept, ideas and process behind the creation of this installation.
"Virtues of Unity, it is about the human condition and, fundamental to our perception of this, unity through diversity. Halima’s idea is to make at least one sculpture to represent each country of the world..." Andrew LambirthCombining strong geometric elements with recurrent patterns and architectural principles, Halima’s work utilises definite lines and dramatic angles in an attempt to manifest the universal language of number and create an unsettling sense of movement.
Halima concentrates on simple forms as the basis of her work in order to maximise the impact of the complex surface patterns in combination with heavily contrasting contours. This approach provides her with the tools to create the compelling drama and playful dynamism that characterises her work.
