Exhibition Rationale:

Perception is the process of acquiring, interpreting, selecting, and organizing sensory information. This concept or approach are found in the field of psychology and the cognitive sciences. The word perception comes from the Latin perception, percepio, , meaning “receiving, collecting, action of taking possession, apprehension with the mind or senses.

Perception is one of the oldest fields within scientific psychology, and there are correspondingly many theories about its underlying processes. Meaning this theory is increasingly gaining experimental support and could be surmised as dynamic relationship between “description” (in the brain) ↔ senses ↔ surrounding.

In the contexts or art, perception does comes closely in how a person can interprets visually. Art commonly refers to a diverse range of human activities and artifacts, and may be used to cover all or any of the arts, including music, literature and other forms. It is most often used to refer specifically to the visual arts. Some may ask how does perception connects with work of art (visual art)? In this case the best reference was in 1915 French artist Marcel Duchamp began doing his “readymades” — found objects he chose and presented as art. He assembled the first readymade, a bicycle wheel mounted on a stool. Followed soon after his work Fountains, the urinal signed with the pseudonym R. Mutt that shocked the art world in 1917, was selected as “the most influential artwork of the 20th century” by 500 renowned artists and historian. This is the aura of extraordinary artwork that change perception of what should art look like or be like. In other words art does give new interpretations in the world that we are living and other factors that give birth to new idea or ways of seeing.

Artists – Works & Statement

ELIAS YAMANI ISMAIL

Lingkaran Series : Triangle
Canvas and pins

105cm x 92cm

2007

Work Statement :

My work is a self discovering journey that I found to be very interesting as its blends with the idea and concept of my artwork. In the process of making my artwork, negative and positive element exist consciously and unconsciously. These series collage inspires from basic form of nature and geometrical forms.

With the combination of organic and geometric simultaneously simplicity and complexity of nature brings the idea of sophistication of nature itself. While the process of repeating a singular form somehow it creates new perception and interpretation. These combination are my views and how I hope to interpret it in my artworks.

ISNIAN IBRAHIM

Temple

Digital photography

30 x 30 cm

2008

Work Statement:

The photos are a sort of a release of emotional pent up feelings, so basically it is a group of random pictures that i took in no particular time to convey the different emotions at that time.

I especially love the feel of emptiness of space that surrounds certain pictures in different timezones and places, the feeling of alienation and abandonment. I like to explore the different colors and textures that was in front of me, for example the dark clouds, the color of a dying leaf, the textures of dead branches, the ripples of dropping water and so on and so forth.

All of the photos I took using my SLR camera and edited using a few softwares for example, Picasa and Paint.NET.

NURUL AZMAH

The Vertigo Series

Acrylic on paper

27 x 27cm

2008

Work Statement:

I started painting seriously last 2 years. The works that you will see are my latest series that I produced at the end of last year. The idea is about blending of colors spontaneously and experimentation of the staining effects on a surface. Other unexpected effects such as the creation of lines during the process and the element of movements were shown in my works. My works mainly base on circular form and emphasis strongly on roundness.

RINI HASHIM

Work Statement :

Having to study the ‘enslaving’ commercial visual arts & currently surrounded with ‘serious’ contemporary fine art at my workplace, it’s quite natural for anyone to fall in love with the exact opposite. I am influenced by artists such as Marcel Dzama, Akino Kondoh & Aya Takano to name a few. Cartoon, sex, violence, menstruation, maiming, shooting, bears, & insects are normally the elements that dominate their works. Though my paintings so far are much subtle and less gory, this show will be my first nervous attempt in creating a body of work that expresses youth, isolation, girls who are neither pre nor post-pubescent and innate furry ‘comrades’. I believe that one should not take art too seriously, so there won’t be anything philosophical or deep about them, just the strong urge of never wanting to grow up.

AZAD DANIEL HARIS

Work Statement:

“The Social Order”, is loosely based on a series of sketches which I began five years ago. My sketch book was used to document my daily surroundings but more importantly, it became a visual diary of things which impacted and affected me personally. I was inspired to reproduce my sketch book in this series which I’ve entitled “The Social Order”.

The series is completed in pen & ink because this medium metaphorically highlights the notion that life is just not “black and/or white”- instead it is spontaneous … crazy … fun … challenging … adventurous and sometimes it is completely unpredictable! And thus I have highlighted certain images in colour to underscore my zest for life!
