Rana Begum at Amrita Jhaveri
London-based Asian artist Rana Begum works with colour, line and form to create sculptural works out of materials including folded aluminium and coloured paper. Her first solo show in Mumbai opened on October 25 2011 at the Amrita Jhaveri project space, and a follow-up show is due to open on December 15 2011 at the city’s Project 88 space.
Begum uses flat colour fields to create the illusion of 2D within her 3D sculptural works. Opaque coloured card in vibrant complementary hues and powder-coated aluminium in bold colours are used to refine her chosen palettes until they are made up of only three or four hues.
Rana Begum is represented in the UK by Bischoff/Weiss.
