Suitors, 2011. Oil on Canvas. 61cm x 91.5cm.
We’ve seen much of Shahril Nizam‘s work within the art community, and waited quite a while for this: the announcement of his first solo exhibition.
If you were one of the lucky few at the recent Arts for Grabs March 2013, you would have been presented with the opportunity to purchase some of his artwork. For those who follow the local literary scene, he is the artist behind the beautiful illustrations for books such as Malaysian Politicians Say The Darndest Things Vol 1 by Amir Muhammad; Growing Up With Ghosts by Bernice Chauly; and the collection of Malaysian writing in Readings from Readings Vol 1 and 2. He has also published a book of poetry and illustrations titled If Only.
OUR ArtProjects, the team working with the artist on this exhibition, was also recently involved in Sharon Chin‘s one-day exhibition Weeds/Rumpai. You can catch more previews and behind-the-scenes pictures of their exhibitions and artists if you visit their website.
OUR ArtProjects is excited to kick off its inaugural programme with Shahril Nizam’s long awaited solo exhibition, In Between: Transitions & Dead Ends. This presentation of paintings, drawings and sculptural objects in a room installation is a culmination of four long years of intuitive exploration. It traces the conceptual and technical processes that visualise Shahril’s deeply-held fascination for the human psyche and its mental continuum.
The details for the exhibition are below:
