The earlier works in Daud Rahim’s repertoire deal with a number of subjects. Key points would be the artist’s espousal of draughtsmanship (or drawing), repetition, time, and space. There is no immediate narration, tale, or message in these early works. Like frozen frames in an animation or a video, these visual trails aid viewers in understanding the temporal and formal facets in the artist’s practice. Daud’s choice of exposing blank or white spaces in these works only heightens this effect. the artist has used bolder colours, applied more industrial materials, and the tranquillity and grace afforded by the repetitions of fish have been replaced by charged lines and forceful mark making.
