This piece isn’t as busy as Rafiee Ghani’s other artworks, yet still packed with emotion. This rather large piece is employed as Rafiee Ghani space where he probes and studies the relationship between his thoughts and perspective, with various figures and colours. Mood is crucial for Rafiee Ghani, as he has mentioned that he does not merely paint his subjects, but his feelings about his subjects. In a way, this piece is an emotional capsule, as Rafiee collects his thoughts, views and perspectives.
