Item Description

Caret Down Primary

The canvas was first marked with diluted black plaka brushstrokes which stained the raw canvas, and then primed with clear acrylic medium to prepare it for the oil paint & gold metal leaf to be applied on top. 'Midnight Stars' was intentionally created to be quite dark and is best displayed under indirect light where the figure and gold leaf is most clearly revealed. In some lighting conditions the figure can seemingly disappear completely except for the gold encrusted deep dark royal blue dress (this hue was one element that inspired the piece).

The symbolism of the magnificent peacock and the gorgeous hues of its feathers were the prime inspiration for this piece.
In Greco Roman mythology the peacocks signature tail markings symbolized the 'eyes' of the stars watching over us, besides being a symbol of vision, awakening and guidance. Like the phoenix it is also a symbol of transformation or renewal linked to alchemical traditions, that reminds us that we can rise out of our darkest moments, or the dying of our ego-self, to be reborn into a new life of awareness, spirituality and illumination.

In Babylonian/Persian traditions the peacock was seen as a guardian of royalty and in others a protector of both the strong and the weak.
Kwan-Yin (from asian spirituality) and Lakshmi (Hinduism) were both associated with the royal peacock and similarly was an emblem of kindness, love and watchfulness. In Kwan-Yin's case her story depicts that she (who could be immortal) chose to remain mortal for she wished to stay behind and aid humanity in their spiritual evolution.

Artist Profile

Born: 1980

Hometown: Kelantan

Lives and Works: Selangor

I have been incredibly lucky to be able to create art as my professional vocation for more than 15 years. Being able to explore and delve into this passion deeply full time, is a gift I am continually grateful for...
Style: I tend to lean towards realistic renderings with abstraction coming into play to hopefully create exciting & mentally stimulating pieces.. The human form is one of my favourite subjects at the moment but I am on a continuous journey of creative discovery in style and content..

Inspiration: Being of Anglo-Indian descent and growing up in the urban multi racial & cultural, sunny shores of Malaysia has undoubtedly shaped my worldview and driven me to always try to represent diversity in my work as much as possible. My conceptual pieces are usually developed and inspired by what lurks within the pages of my second love - books, and the inevitable influences of the unique and 'exciting' times we live in.. I see the persistent honing of my artistic skills as integral to creating, and exploring and developing my skills in differing mediums and techniques is one of the many amazing and ever inspiring parts of the process.

Distinctions: Featured & interviewed on Hypp TV 'The Art Gallery' in 2013, which features some of the most promising emerging & established artists in Malaysia.

Education:
Graduated from Lim Kok Wing University College (2004) with a Diploma in Visual Art but has been on the whole, mostly self taught.
