Mapping Norfolk, exhibition by Kabir Hussain

I was pleased to attend an excellent exhibition of work by Kabir Hussain from his on-going landscape project – “Mapping Norfolk 3” at the Greyfriars Art Space Kings Lynn, held over the August Bank Holiday weekend. On show were charcoal drawings complimented by wire sculptures both of which had a spacial and linear quality, which he says are “based on a general aspiration of landscape rather than specific locations, they essentially are an exploration of mark-making.” These deceptively simple works have a beauty and purity of line that associates them with the tradition of minimalism.

Kabir is involved with the forthcoming Fakenham Contemporary Art show 2011, which also looks to be well worth a visit.
