Hala Sabet, adurArtcollective member, will be having a solo exhibition at the Skyway Gallery in Shoreham in July.
Influenced by her Egyptian roots and cultural background, Hala Sabet has always been fascinated by Geo-metry (measurement of earth), its origins and how it develops an infinite variety of possibilities and structures. Her work explores the simplicity of geometry examining how one can stretch its boundaries and break its rules to make sculptural structures and paintings that abstract representational reference.
“Composites” is an exhibition of her latest Paintings and Sculptures produced in the last two years. They explore the integration of the opposites such as chance/order, stability/precariousness, geometric/organic in an attempt to bring this clash of antonyms into harmony.
“Gravity” is a series of paintings created by letting forces of gravity and elements of chance define its compositions whilst retaining control through broad brush marks. “Favela” is another series that explored the random juxtaposition of forms and shapes in architecture. “Nubia” (a village south of Egypt) is the latest series of paintings and sculptures inspired by the life and culture of Nubia and its vernacular architecture.
Hala Sabet has a BA (First Class Honours) in Fine Art and Masters in Fine Art (with Distinction) and is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
