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.

Sekian, terima kasih.

Pelita Hati-ARTalk from the heART

4.00pm-Thinking of Art by YM Raja Shahriman b. Raja Aziddin, one of Malaysia foremost contemporary sculptors. Raja Shahriman employs the traditional Malay blacksmithing methods but expresses the material in contemporary context; whereby the forms incorporated in his sculptures allude to the nature of mankind. He has developed several impressive series of metal work adopting sharp and deadly forms such as his Killing Tools, Semangat Besi series and his greatest acclaim of figurative work-Gerak Tempur, Nafas & Rhythm of the 21st Century. Raja Shahriman understanding of metal and anatomy led him to create figurative works that are strikingly surreal and grotesquely beautiful at the same time.

5.00pm-The Art of Thinking by YB Dato’ Kamil b. Aziz, Chief Executive Officer of AIROD, Malaysia’s premiere Aerospace Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) Company.Kamil has more than 27 years experience in the aerospace industry-planning, project management, capability development and engineering maintenance of both military and commercial aircraft operations. His interest includes art, cinema, & architecture. Kamil loves the pseudo-sciences and is an amateur numerologist. He is an avid reader and is passionate about understanding people, happiness & positive psychology.

Kamil Aziz, the CEO of AIROD will share real-life stories from his experience to provide insights on how the different “thinking styles” is equally important in the corporate world as well as for artists and the creative professionals in the ART industry. He aims to provide a different perspective and view on the creative industry in facing the current challenges in this new age.

I write and I paint to express myself. Life is about sharing, expressing and giving loving kindness and helping others. I know I am on a journey, along the way I write about it, I paint about it and I wish to share my thoughts and my art with those like minded people who may find it interesting. And helpful, I hope and wish for them.

Kemelut Zaman-Exhibition Jan 2012

02. Nov, 2011 ·Comments Off on Kemelut Zaman-Exhibition Jan 2012

The sculptures of Raja Shahriman have taken a new breath from his last works in Rhythm of the 21st Century. The dark serious pieces in rhythm have given way to modern contemporary and almost pop art sculptures.

The sculptures Raja Shahriman has created in Kemelut Zaman are not only refreshing to look at but are very appropriate in the context of our modern society. In exploring new forms, Raja Shahriman has cleverly transformed musical instruments, cultural and traditional objects into modern, interesting and aesthetic pieces of art that will remain relevant over time. The fine metal finish he has given the works makes the sculptures modern and elegant. Thus despite the few numbers, the sculptures in Kemelut Zaman not only affirm the skill and craftsmanship of Raja Shahriman, but also demonstrate his wittiness as a contemporary artist.
