Psyche by Rofizano Zaino
Galeri chandan @ Publika Lot 24 & 25 (G4) Publika Shopping Gallery Jalan dutamas 1, Kuala Lumpur Tel: 03-620 15360 firstname.lastname@example.org TILL JAN 10: Previously presented in the Hillyer Art Space in Washington DC, USA, and The Imaginarium in George Town, Penang, Psyche is now showing here, featuring 13 works by Rofi, a Singaporean-born Malay artist. 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).
