This is my second solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur after the first one in 2012. I feel very honoured to be invited by Oriental Art and Cultural Center to showcase my recent “non-architecture” sketches bearing the theme Close Objects – which are common objects or small things in my surroundings. I started this series with some botanic / plant sketches four years ago and realised that the beauty of nature is incomparable with any man-made buildings.
I thus themed it “Close Objects” than “still life” as the objects I have depicted are not deliberately designed for painting. They are the little things common to me such as: corns bought from the market, dried bamboo roots collected from the seaside, withered trees by the roadside etc.
Beauty is everywhere near you; you just need to observe with all your heart.
I am compiling my recent Penang sketches into a new art book and target to be publish by early new year. If you are interested to get a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that i will put you in my mailing list and update you with latest information. Thank you for your support.
