This is the first of a series Batik theme of sculptures by the artist. This sculpture seeks to exemplify the alluring nature of the intricate collaboration between the body and the soul that lurks all of us. The use of bright, batik fabric and the fluidity of the sculpture work hand-in-hand to create a marriage and harmony of the sacred and the sensual. The wrapping of the batik around the delicate contours of the female body symbolizes its role as the “skin” that latches onto our souls, with the strong calling for tradition in a time of modernity, pulling us back into our roots where we know, deep inside us, we belong.

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.
