“I embarked on a conquest of inner space, texture and colour bringing the beauty of the natural world indoors, which is transformed onto paper and canvas. I have explored my work in such a way which might lead to confusion and curiosity on the part of my viewers. I hope that the viewer will explore my work through his or her own individual imagination and perception of the world,” said the reputable artist himself. This particular artwork takes on a relatively warmer mood compared to the artists’ other works. Ismail’s hallmark remains the centrepiece of this painting, which is the moon that’s hiding away ever so slightly.
