This coming weekend, Sunday 18th March 2012, Malaysian Watercolor Society (MWS) will have a soft-launching of its annual group exhibition at the NNGallery (please see more info below).
NN Gallery proudly presents MWS 2012 Annual Exhibition from 17th until 31st March 2012. This exhibition will showcase recent works by 28 members of the Malaysian Watercolour Society (MWS). Members of the MWS have actively participated in local exhibitions as well as many invitational programmes in Asia and in other foreign countries.
The quiet fashion of watercolours is ideal for capturing everyday scenes. A spot painter would find a location and begin a narrative of his surroundings. A favourite amongst the members of this society are rural, floral and fauna, figurative and picturesque scenes. With strong affiliation to our roots and heritage they continue to paint scenes that are reminiscent of early years past, life in the kampungs, the going-ons of local scenes and historical landmarks and buildings.
Participating artists include Tan Sik Yaw, Tan Suz Chiang, Mohammad Faizal Hj Zainal, Yeo Eng Peng, Jansen Chow, Abdul Ghani Ahmad, Lee Eng Beng, Lee Weng Fatt, Alex Leong Yim Kuan, Dr. Wong Seng Tong, Kho Choon Lee, Zaharuddin Sarbini, Jacky Chin, Lee Sing Pan, Md Nor Bidin, Calvin Chua, Liang See Shong, Cheung Pooi Yip, Yong Look Lam, Koh Shim Luen, Chow Chin Chuan, Lee Kee Seng, Khoo Chiang Jin, Khor Seow Hooi, Dato Tengku Alaudin bin Tengku Abdul Majid, Loo Hooi Nam, Nurhayati Mohd Yusoff and King Ban Hui.
With a deep concern to bring back watercolour to its glory days, this much loved and much overlooked medium presented in this exhibition will highlight some interesting facets of Malaysian life and environment.

So… I’ve decided to show 3 of my latest watercolor works and choose the study of figures (in black & white watercolor) for this exhibition. I really enjoyed making these paintings even though it was quite a challenge to handle the values of black and turning them into the human forms. I’ve found that the dry brush technique worked best for the purpose. Contrasting them against the colorful backgrounds made them more interesting to look at (in my opinion). Just like our life… what would it be without colors?
From Top to Bottom… the TITLES are… ” Thumbilena Nak Sweets”, ” Pak Pandey- ‘Say Whaaat”, and ” Luncail Dengan Belon-belonNya (biarkan..biarkan)”.
All three are 38cm x 56cm in SIZES.
Thanks to my dearest models…. my sweetest niece, Jasmeen… my sexy hubby (hehehe)… and my mad brother, Ali.
