Halima’s work is a combination of strong geometric elements, recurrent patterns, architectural principles, definite lines and dramatic angles.
By concentrating on simple forms as the basis of her work, Halima maximises the impact of the complex surface patterns and heavily contrasting contours. These characteristics arise from a combination of influences: her Asian roots, a fascination for African pattern work and her passion for architectural geometry.
Halima manipulates form, creating dynamic tensions between constituent parts of a work. The source of her fascination with carved space is that she is able to articulate rhythmical movements, rippling and flowing across and through the surface and structure.
Her work has developed its own momentum and is the engine that drives her creativity. The excitement she feels from her explorations keeps her going, and constantly leads Halima down hitherto unexplored creative pathways.
