Land(escape)able, the same mechanical elements that is pyrographed onto canvas with finesse, becoming strong symbolic elements of construction and destruction. Haafiz maintains the visual ambiguity between landscape and machinery, assimilating the man-made creations to the natural contours of a rocky mountain. The subject matter of choice is largely based on the more commonly known Chinese landscapes, clearly localized to our Malaysian geography and cultures through familiar landscapes close to our heart.
The intervention of pyrography on the rocks witnessed from afar, suggests the idea of landscape but upclose, man-made mechanisms are vaguely recognizable, duly forming the makeup of the mountain. Through this artwork, Haafiz emphasises human interference with nature and its constant forcibility to intrude on the forces of nature for urbanization. The irony of industrial capitalism is that it raze everything in its path to subsequently construct an artificial element in its place, a mere replica of nature. In an afterthought, Haafiz raises a possibility; instead, we should adapt ourselves in respect of our surrounding landscape or what we call home.
