Rana Begum @ Tate St Ives
May 19, 2018 - September 30, 2018
Rana Begum explores 'colour, light and form' and the way in which these interact. Blurring the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture, her work ranges from drawings, paintings and wall-based sculptures to large-scale public art projects.
Begum is influenced by the geometric abstraction of minimalism and constructivism and the work of artists such as Agnes Martin, Donald Judd, Jesús Rafael de Soto and Tess Jaray. She is also inspired by the use of repetition in Islamic art and architecture, and the way in which light filters through architectural features such as pierced screens to create optical and sensory effects.
