In this long-awaited 3rd solo exhibition at Woolff Gallery, Hassim's work explores the different atmospheres surrounding both the powerful and turbulent energy of surging demonstrators and protest marches, exuberant marathon runners and revelling masses, as well as the calmer moments of the urban environment such as pedestrians flowing through the city. It also attempts to describe the varying paces and moods of individuals as distinct entities, at times juxtaposed against and at times dissolved by those of the multitude.
Whilst many of Hassim’s paintings focus on crowds and the passage of life that traverses her home city of London, in 2012, Hassim journeyed to New York to explore another city renowned for its speed and vibrant population. During this short period, she produced works that captured the Occupy movement and iconic areas of New York City, such as Times Square and Grand Central Station.

"I am drawn to the achingly beautiful luminescence of the natural and artificial light shining through and reflecting off the flags of demonstrators, sides of buildings and leafy trees. Often these sublime moments are juxtaposed against the wild desperation of passionate demonstrators, or the world weary energy of trudging pedestrians.” said Oona Hassim.
