The sombre, monochromatic palette of the series is broken up at well-chosen points throughout, with the introduction of lighter and brighter tones as accent. Penunggu Alam: Sayap Jibril… particularly stands out however, as the dominant shade appears white, with the sepia tones settling into the background and on the sides of the piece. The canvases are interspersed with long wooden panels that represent life. On the occasion of moving to Kuala Kangsar and beginning to build his studio space, Husin had to cut down 3 durian trees - whose wood has been used in the construction of these panels. The long, wooden spikes jutting out from each panel visually matches the texture on the long ‘wing’ that goes across the main body of the work.
The main feature of Penunggu Alam: Sayap Jibril…, the long central wing was built up through the application of white enamel paint. Placing the work on the floor and working in a free, expressionist manner developed during Zero to Something, Zero to Nothing, the white paint was poured, dripped and built with the use of brushes and sticks to suggest form and shape through texture. This texture continues on the metal border around the pieces of wood and the cubes rendered on the side canvases.

Established Malaysian contemporary artist Husin Hourmain is an abstract expressionist artist at heart. His paintings are a pure expression of flowing energy. From his very successful solo Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf show in 2013, Husin singlehandedly brought about a new perspective to Islamic calligraphy as we know it and proves to be the most sought after Malaysian contemporary Islamic calligraphy artist. His collection of 30 pieces from his Awal Hurouf Asal Hurouf is widely acclaimed and garnered much attention beyond the borders of race, religion and nationality.
Observing an impending decline of understanding the Jawi amongst our youth, Husin Hourmain continues to delve into his cultural and religious identity of being a Malaysian Muslim. He imbues his artworks with a culmination of his strong abstract expressionist brush strokes and Jawi calligraphy, bringing about a better understanding and appreciation of Jawi for his multi-cultural and multi-racial audience.
His works are collected by public and private collectors in Malaysia.
