Description

In a beautifully harmonious juxtaposition of two cultures, Islamic Art Meets British Flowers combines the formal structure and discipline of Islamic floral pattern-making with British flowers and architectural forms to create a truly unique series of artworks.

Hadil Tamim, was born in Al-Yarmouk Refugee Camp south of Damascus, Syria. Her family’s heritage is rooted deeply within occupied Palestine. For the last two decades she has been living in Reading, UK, where she has turned to her art to create a bridge between two homes and two cultures. The result is a couple of dozen breath-taking new works – a new pattern line. They draw on the architectural forms of the buildings in Reading for structure and colour, the flowers found in and around the town for the arabesque, and the artist’s training in ceramic and Islamic decorative art.

Together with excerpts from her sketchbook and practical sections on the techniques she uses, along with Adrian Lawson’s commentary on the flowers, this gift of creativity in a situation riven with conflict, provides inspiration and hope for art lovers across the globe.

Hadil Tamim and Adrian Lawson. Paperback, 200 x 200mm, 74 pages, April 2021
