NOOR ABUISSA

Noor Abuissa graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Art and a focus on linking Islamic Geometric Art to the Spiritual in Abstract Geometric Art. 


Abuissa’s artistic practice is founded on the semantics of Islamic geometry and design. Using abstract geometry as her visual language and intuition as her guiding process, Abuissa’s work deconstructs the picture plane into forms and shapes steered by a careful use of colour. Derailing the genre from its usual need to create a whole image of impact, the artist instead reflects immediate and singular thought, intention and emotion.


Using her work to examine her own life, Abuissa captures the small moments that bring us joy as well as big experiences that might define us.

'In the wake of mundane everyday experiences, this series of 14 paintings hung in scintillating harmony compels their audience to let go of self-induced pressure, ignore composition, and embrace raw feelings and beginnings of internal dialogue.


Wafting through each edge, an air of possibility and potential is born'

COLLAGE

Paper Cutouts, Feeling Colour

This ongoing series of paper cutouts began in 2015 while in Residence at the Fire Station Artist in Residence in Doha, Qatar. Using Acrylic Paint on Watercolour paper to achieve tonalities of vibrant colour, forms are constructed and deconstructed so easily during the process of making that the result is an immediate response of emotion, translating the Artist's thoughts directly into visuals.
