Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This series of 3 pcs paintings is called Phantom Planet.This the 1st of the 3.Its titled: EXILE.
The exile in modern society is the man who sees and understands and yet cannot belong. This painting explores the deep emptiness that the loss of culture and heritage brings, the purgatory-like backdrop accompanied by somber hues of red and pink amid recollections of the past culminating in the form of ghosts that haunt and plague the ambiguous, corporeal figure. In this crimson chaos, the figure yearns to conquer that which he has lost and wishes to reclaim for himself in the present, these spectres gradually floating away from him into oblivion—finally, the question remains: what are we if not our memories?

Artist Profile

Born: 1964

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

As a contemporary artist based in Singapore, Rashid renders his own visual and conceptual interpretations gleaned from observations of everyday life and modern culture.

Taking inspiration from Michelangelo, Carravagio, Pablo Picasso and Jeff Koons, Rashid absorbs everything that surrounds him. The nature of his work varies from time to time and is mostly rendered on canvas, paper and fabric.

Rashid works from his studio at home, often at odd hours while trying to capture the rush of blood to his head. To him, painting is like a dream, something that can be imagined in front of you. He believes that every house should have an art piece, because every house contains a dream.
