Be­ing young

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Art -

HOM Art Trans gallery is tak­ing on a wist­ful youth­ful di­rec­tion in its up­com­ing group ex­hi­bi­tion Long­ing Mem­o­ries, which fea­tures new­comer artists like Chok Yue Zan, Viko Zhi­june and Nik Husyai­die, all in their early 20s.

The show runs at the Am­pang­based gallery from Aug 5-19.

“Long­ing Mem­o­ries is an ex­hi­bi­tion of paint­ings from three young con­tem­po­rary tal­ents that we feel need to be in­tro­duced to the broader masses,” says Da­nial Fuad, Hom Art Trans gallery man­ager.

Long­ing Mem­o­ries cap­tures the artists re­flect­ing on their child­hood mem­o­ries through dif­fer­ent artis­tic styles. The works, span­ning mixed me­dia and oil on can­vas, touch on per­sonal sto­ries and fea­ture im­ages of na­ture to rep­re­sent emo­tion, dreams and hope.

“These artists, de­spite their rel­a­tively young ages, have de­liv­ered very thought­ful and per­sonal works to this show,” he adds.

Chok’s paint­ings talk about sad­ness and the changes that he has ex­pe­ri­enced through his child­hood years. He com­bines fig­ures from old pho­to­graphs with scenes of na­ture. Nik Husyai­die plays with com­po­si­tion, and achieves vi­brant re­sults from his study of tex­tures, colours and shapes.

Mean­while, Viko’s pieces are con­sumed by her in­ner strug­gles, with a gar­den­scape of melan­cholic and moody im­ages.

Long­ing Mem­o­ries is on at Hom Art Trans, 6A Jalan Cem­paka 16, Ta­man Cem­paka, Am­pang in Se­lan­gor from Aug 5 to 19. Open: Tues­day to Satur­day, 11am to 6pm. More info: www.homart­trans.com. Call 03-9286 7004.
