Barnett Newman (1984) once wrote in an essay, “Instead of making cathedrals out of Christ, man, ‘life’, we are making it out of ourselves”. This line sums up of what abstract expressionism and abstract art itself, is – free from the norms of art, expressing emotions from deep within the artists themselves.
Independence Day is a day of celebration and remembrance of the past that has shaped our present. It is a day where we are reminded of our country’s history, both good and bad-the day we achieved liberation for the people, and the power to shape the country’s future. No better art form is suited to express these feelings than abstract art, art that defies the formalities of art itself. Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. In Malaysia, abstract arts had become more accessible and showed alternative ways by artists to describe visual experience- which is not representational and could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.
To commemorate the upcoming ‘Merdeka day’ celebrations, Pelita Hati Gallery of Art would be hosting an art exhibition entitled ‘Abstrak Merdeka: Liberation of Expression’ from 27th August 2016 until 25th September 2016. Incorporating Independence Day as the main theme for the exhibition, ‘Abstrak Merdeka: Liberation of Expression’ celebrates 59 years of independence with works of abstract art from selected artists, mostly who are new to Malaysia’s art scene. We chose to give opportunities to these new and upcoming artists hoping that this will encourage them to pursue their goals of becoming a well-known artist someday. This also hopes to liberate them from feelings of despair and disappointment stemming from the difficulties of being an artist.
