Khatim

This artwork explores designs found in traditional Islamic art. Khatim is created from eclipsed moons. The intention of the artwork is to convey balance, harmony and infinity. There is a sense of flow and connection that runs through the work – a never ending repeated pattern – an infinite geometric continuation.

The individual stainless steel panels have an hand worked angle-ground pattern that catches and reflects the sunlight, and dance around the sculpture as the observer moves around the work, creating a shimmering almost holographic effect.

The work also draws on the similarities between the western minimalist movement and traditional Islamic art – the seriality, repetition and attention to line and form which all have much in common with each other.

The work is available in limited editions in different sizes. A water feature edition is also available.
