London-based artist Lubna Chowdhary creates bright, visceral installations from vibrantly hand-glazed ceramics that are extremely easy on the eye. Taking inspiration from the aesthetic practices of De Stijl, particularly Mondrian, Lubna’s work is geometric in its construction, taking complex networks of patterns and shapes and transforming them into three dimensional wall hangings. Unlike Mondrian and his counterparts her work is thick with colour, an unashamed chromatic treat.
In respect to the traditions of her craft, Lubna creates all of her work by hand, developing each piece through a rigorous process of research, drawing and collaboration with her clients. The results are crisp and polished but maintain the tell-tale signs of the artist’s hand that always makes hand-crafted work that much more engaging.
