Eclipsis Wall Piece by Halima Cassell
A sculptural wall piece created for Halima’s solo exhibition at Blackwell Arts and Crafts House. Limited edition of 100.
Inspired by lunar eclipses, viewed in astrology as being deeply transformative times. A lunar eclipse can be an extremely powerful time for cleansing our emotional waters and setting intention for renewal and rejuvenation. As with Eclipsis, eclipses are rare because they can only take place when the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are all aligned.
Dimensions: (H) 45.2 x (W) 27 x (D) 6.6 cm
Hand cast in white jesmonite. Each piece is hand finished and hand polished, with a split batten wall fixing, and comes with a signed edition certificate.
When Eclipsis and its partner, Venn, are pulled together their lines reflect and compliment one another, bringing together our emotional and spiritual self in perfect balance.
Combining 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.
