Brought up as a Muslim since birth, it is inevitable that Ali Nurazmal’s faith also plays a part in the formation of his works. His exploration of space in Ralik 2 is one example of this. The horizontal plane that the dance is performed on is a reference to the Islamic principles of hablum minallah and hablum minannas, our relationship with God and relationship with man respectively.
For the artist, the God to man relationship is expressed through the vertical, while the human to human relationship is expressed through the horizontal. Thus, for Ralik 2, he chooses the landscape format, as to him the work suggests that we need to work out our socio-cultural and interpersonal issues with others in order to make peace in our vertical relationship with the divine.
True to his nature, however, the allusion to his faith is never loud and always subtle. Even without knowledge of it, the viewer can still appreciate the artist’s skillful use of colour planes to give the impression of a tiered landscape receding into the shadows, a progression from the first Ralik in terms of the scene’s added depth.
