Dark and earthy colours are employed to paint a humble scene of a rubber estate with rows of rubber trees as far as the horizon. The trees are pictured leaning towards the right, as if it’s craving sunlight. This work is simple yet carries weight in nostalgia. Jailani Abu Hassan, born in 1963 in Selangor is commonly known as ‘Jai’ in the Malaysian art scene. After achieving his bachelors in Fine Art at the same institution in 1985 when it was then the Mara Institute of Technology (now UiTM), he continued his master’s degree at the Slade School of Fine Art at the University College of London. Since then, he has been actively pursuing his passion in the Malaysian art scene while lecturing at UiTM.
