Item Description

IconCaretDown

This is the 2nd of the 3 pcs of painting called Phantom Planet.
This artwork seeks to explore the split in the psyche of Man, divided between worldly affairs and that of the spiritual,
the realm of the dead versus the living. This idea is expressed by the juxtaposition of monochromatic strokes against
the foreground of heads and figures representing memories and experiences in the form of lost loves,
such symbols further pronounced with the stark use of primary colours.

The painting suggest a certain fragmentation at the heart of the matter,
creating shifts in culture, heritage and meaning all at once. All of this culminates in the figurative death of
the flesh-coloured pair at the center of the painting itself, representing at last the metaphorical, dualistic
struggle of Man himself to make sense of the chaos that is modern living.

Artist Profile

Born: 1964

Hometown: Singapore

Lives and Works: 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.
