A look into Ismail Mat Hussin’s beautiful etch of landscape, featuring the lush greenery of the East Coast shows an impressive level of talent and a soft hearted man the artist was. He exhibits a village home that is simple in the most minimalistic manner, yet capturing the essence of a country home as well as the peace and solitude which resides in it. He brings out a traditional and nostalgic feel merely through an ink on paper with a dash of green watercolour. Though it seems unfinished, but any art which stems from the fingers of Ismail Mat Hussin is bound to be admired and cherished.
