Halima Cassell returns to Blackwell after 10 years with a mesmerising exhibition showcasing a large selection ceramic sculptures, drawings, collages and wallpapers.
Since her exhibition at Blackwell in 2011, Halima Cassell has become an internationally renowned artist. Halima Cassell: Reflections is an accumulation of artworks made over the past three decades and intimately expresses the story of the artist's life and artistic journey. Presenting an exquisite selection of artwork in the unique architectural setting of Blackwell- the Arts & Crafts house, the exhibition is an enchanting experience.
Cassell was born in Kashmir and brought up in Lancashire. Her work is held in various national and international collections, including at the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Hepworth Wakefield and Birmingham Art Gallery.
Cassell's exploration of her dual international heritage is expressed within her work through the fusion of material and design. The distinctive geometric patterns which form her sculptures are also influenced by natural forms and textures she has discovered whilst travelling.
Cassell's sculptures are made from robust materials such as unglazed ceramic, bronze and cast iron. The sculptures will be presented alongside a collection of the artist's drawings and wallpapers in the exhibition gallery in the house.
