“I embarked on a conquest of inner space, texture and colour bringing the beauty of the natural world indoor, which is transformed onto paper and canvas. I have explored my work in such a way which might lead to confusion and curiosity on the part of my viewers, I hope that the viewer will explore my work through his or her own individual imagination and perception of the world.”

This work takes on a relatively darker mood compared to the artists’ other works. The spectacle of brushworks in gold remains the centrepiece of this painting, followed by the Ismail’s hallmark, the moon.
