Item Description

IconCaretDown

This is the follow up of 'Siren',second of a series of Batik theme of sculptures by the artist. Inspired by the idea of the modern man, who is suffering and questioning his place in the world in the chaos that is change, and who seeks the simplicity of times in the past. It is a self portrait of life in today’s world, where the use of batik fabric as a skin to the body symbolizes how we are drawn to seek refuge in culture and tradition, the only constant factor in a world of change. Culture and tradition stays with us forever, and as we revert into this part of ourselves like The Hermit, it highlights how they are a definite part of who we are as individuals.

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.
