SCULPTURE : i have always been fascinated by it, as long as i can remember. when i was 8 or 9, i'll build something from my kampung's lawn. Surrounded by nature, i used the readily available branch, stone, dried leaves and pretty much of whatever there is. I have no idea there's a word to describe the stuff that i build, lost in my own world and imagination...i just enjoy watching the stuff that i build, dramatically at odd with its surrounding. Tho' i know by the next day our herd of goats might ruin it, or the night downpour might wash it away...i just love to find out what happen next, how long will it last, what shape will it be. To see it 'grow'. Thank god, i was pretty much all by myself back then, otherwise my schoolmate would have think that what a freak i am. So..you see, i was a closet sculptor.
Even till today, i'm pretty much still intrigued by a SCULPTURE. An art form that is to me very sexy for being delicate, generous for being touchable, raw for being honest. As you can see, it is very difficult for me to explain my love affair with the art form that SCULPTURE is, that i was in love with despite not knowing its existence. And so, i'm humbly inviting you all to this latest show..hoping that you might understand why is it that i'm so in love with SCULPTURE.(hoping that it catches on)
This group exhibition is a joint effort of 16 artists, my idol (Professor Ramlan Abdullah) also in it...so you see..i can't hardly contain my excitement! joint by his protege and peers, all 16 artists developed their own distinctive style using myriad of objects as their medium. Ranging from light installation, clay, granite, concrete, driftwood, molten steel, deconstruct crystal...it sure is mind boggling. So please, enjoy the ride..
*participating artists are:
ABDUL LATIFF, AHMAD FAUZI, AZAHARI KHALIP, DIANA IBRAHIM, KHAIRUL AZMIR AKA MEME, MOHAMAD HAFIZ, MOHAMAD RADZI, MOHAMAT NAJIB, MOHD FAIRUL RIZAM, MOHD SAFWAN, RAMLAN ABDULLAH, ROZANA MUSA, SAHARUDDIN SUPAR, SHARMIZA ABU HASSAN, UMI BAIZURAH ISMAIL AND YUHANIS IBRAHIM.
