Peace & Harmony…

12 Aug

This Saturday, I’ll be attending the Opening Ceremony of an Art Exhibition by several of Malaysian Women Artists- 32 of them, to be exact. The artists were all invited by June Art Space which is in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. And yes, my painting will be among them too :).

As you can see on the invitation card, the Art Exhibition will display only LARGE paintings- no less than 3′ x 4′! Furthermore, it will reflect the theme of “Peace & Harmony” by the Women Artists.

In my previous post, I have given you the sneak peek to the progress of my large painting. Now, let’s see what has become of it…

"A Rose by Any Other Name- Vulnerability", Watercolor & Charcoal on Paper, 3' x 4', 2011.

Here’s a painting that for me, has its own meaning and is very different from many paintings I have done before. It’s a combination of watercolor on large watercolor paper and charcoal.

It is entitled, ” Vulnerability”. Simply, it’s a reflection of women in general… being exposed… and vulnerable to her surrounding/ environment. That, women in general are quite fragile, just like flowers… need Protection. When this is understood, we will be in Peace & Harmony.

Apart from the painting above, I have also submitted another 2 paintings that are in continuation of the theme. One of the paintings will be sent to Sokka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) and the other to a gallery in Penang named Island Gallery.

"A Rose by Any Other Name- Peace I", Watercolor & Charcoal on Paper, 56cm x 76cm, 2011.

"A Rose by Any Other Name- Peace II", Watercolor & Charcoal on Paper, 56cm x 76cm, 2011.

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT ON “THE LIGHT OF PEACE” by Yati Yusoff

I believe everyone in this world would like to have some kind of peace in his or her life… even a dictator or a murderer.  For me, peace is beautiful. If I could paint something to symbolize peace, it would be a Rose. It may be beautiful but it’s quite fragile… and with thorns. But the best part about Peace is when you have experienced its beauty, it will forever remain in your heart even when it’s gone. And our inner being will always be drawn to it like a child wanting forever to love and be loved.

The Light of Peace.

It can only come from within…

From within is from God.

But if you have not make peace with God…

You won’t have it in you.

The Light of Peace.

The most beautiful light on earth…

When it is the most beautiful,

It must have come from God.

But if you don’t believe in Him…

Will you ever find peace at all?

The Light of Peace.

It can only come from within…

From within will manifest to the outer world.

It comes from Nothing…

To something…

And returns to..

Nothing.

The Light of Peace,

Is Nothing…

Once you’ve found it within.

    Your paintings are beautiful – I love the contrast of the soft delicate flowers against the black and white figures.
