Rana Begum, Catching Colour, 2022

In a career that spans more than two decades, Rana Begum has made her name creating colourful, sensory works that blur the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. Begum’s striking exploration of shifting colour, light and movement draws on the rhythms of minimalist abstraction as well as the geometric patterns from traditional Islamic art and architecture.

Catching Colour, a new outdoor sculpture created for London’s public art walk, The Line, features clouds of suspended coloured mesh that cast dancing shadows on the ground below. ‘I’m fascinated by the way natural light can change an artwork throughout the day,’ Begum has said. The large-scale installation is partly inspired by Begum’s childhood memories of the forms and reflections cast by fishing nets suspended over water in Bangladesh.
