With this piece Sharifah Fatimah exhibits the true matters of the heart, mind and soul, how the thought processes are never muted and never silent, always showing their garish colours deep within. It is a piece that says, “although outside you may seem calm and collected, the inside is a different story”.

As an artist that frequently uses her thoughts, emotions and feelings as substance for her abstract work, her paintings usually turn out to be a motley of aesthetic mayhem. Such as the matters of the heart and mind, it is never clear, rarely uncluttered and most definitely not immaculate.
