25 years of carving into materials
Published to mark an extraordinary twenty-five year period of carving into materials, this book documents Halima Cassell’s development as an artist and the biographical journey of her artistic practice.
Cassell is an artist of consummate skill and ingenuity. Her distinctive style integrates bold forms with an infinite variety of deeply carved, complex patterns, where form meets shadow. She draws inspiration from geometry found in nature, her surroundings and from her own heritage, all of which have become the basis of Cassell’s visual vocabulary.
This important publication was made possible with part funding from the Arts Council. It is a record of the creative output of one of today’s finest sculptors, whose work is held in leading national and international collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Hepworth Wakefield and Birmingham Art Gallery. It is also the biographical journey of an artist’s creative development, from her earliest creative beginnings to her significant, ongoing installation, Virtues of Unity.
