While he en­joys paint­ing faces and fig­ures, the portraits in his paint­ings per­son­ify is­sues re­lat­ing to iden­tity, so­ci­ety, spir­i­tu­al­ity and so­cio-po­lit­i­cal af­fairs.

For this show, Rofi has em­barked on a psy­cho­log­i­cal study of the face. He paints faces of peo­ple caught in a myr­iad of cir­cum­stances, me­taphor­i­cally con­vey­ing a man strug­gling in stormy seas, a so­ci­ety op­pressed, a woman em­pow­ered, and the courage of a com­mu­nity. Where eyes are the win­dow to one’s soul, the ex­pres­sion, the smile or the slight twitch of the nose does more to re­veal the lives and in­ner sto­ries within. Time: 10am–6pm (Mon to Fri), noon-5pm (Sat and Sun).
