“The Universe is written in the language of mathematics,
and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures.”
Galileo Galilei, Il Saggiatore, 1623
Influenced by her Egyptian roots and cultural background, Hala Sabet has always been fascinated by Geo-metry (measurement of earth), its origins and how it develops an infinite variety of possibilities and structures. Her work explores the simplicity of geometry examining how one can stretch its boundaries and break its rules to make sculptural structures and paintings that abstract representational reference.
Her latest work has focused on the integration of the opposites such as chance/order, stability/precariousness, geometric/organic in an attempt to bring this clash of antonyms into harmony.
