“Remark” is Artcube Gallery’s first show exclusively presenting emerging talents in the Malaysian contemporary art scene.
Featuring Azad Daniel, Al-Khuzairie, Azrin Mohd, Daud Rahim, Dhavinder Singh and Anniketyni Madian, the show provides a snapshot of a new generation of talent and the exciting, inventive directions to which Malaysian art is moving.
All six artists subscribe to the tenets of fine art while exploring the mix of innovation and finesse available to contemporary art.
In “Remark”, Azad Daniel, who is well known for his highly glossy finishes, primes his unusual surfaces with cement then painting with auto paint, thereby propelling his art onto the next level of painterly works.
Young ceramist Al-Khuzairie masters the delicately industrial medium of stoneware ceramics to speak about fragile relationships between humans and the environment.
Azrin Mohd is quickly emerging as a leading assemblage artist with his ability to craft highly specific large-scale works, intricately detailed so as to tightly draw his viewers in.
Daud Rahim’s philosophical conversations, crucial to the intellectual developments in increasingly affluent societies, endear themselves to audiences with an easy aesthetic that belie the difficulty of his explorations in working in a reverse technique.
Dhavinder Singh, fresh from a well-received solo exhibit, develops the local minimal art movement with works that strive to present established concepts in original configurations.
Artcube demonstrates their commitment to promote and represent high value investment grade Malaysian contemporary art at an international standard not only thorough the representation of established artists, but also by supporting of emerging talent. – April 22, 2014.
