Zarah Hussain

Zarah Hussain is an MA graduate of the Visual Islamic and Traditional Art programme at the Prince's School for Traditional Arts in London. She has spent many years perfecting the traditional techniques for creating mathematically precise, geometric art and then adapting them to produce unique works with a contemporary resonance across a range of disciplines. Her work is held in many national collections.

Numina is the latest in a series of installations Zarah Hussain has designed for the Barbican, following on from The Magic Carpet at last yearís Walthamstow Garden Party, which mapped geometric patterns onto the exterior William Morris Gallery, and projections she designed for Faiz Ali Faiz and Sain Zahoorís performance in the Barbican Hall last September which transformed the stage with huge hypnotic patterns.
