The brilliant spectacle that is ‘Hingap II, 2019’ is immensely eye catching and warrants a closer look. While the first few things one notices is the brilliant use of colours, and the appearance of a tree, at a closer look, one discovers the flurry of butterflies that make up the tree. What might be conceived as a reflection of the said tree, is in fact the roots that travel beneath the earth. Born in 1985 in Maran, Pahang, Khairul Izham approaches broad subject of past and memories with complex layering and conscious masking, leaving the audience with residue from the process of recollection. Some of his recent shows include: Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (2011), Deceitful Truths (2011), Dischromatic (2010). Khairul Izham is known to produce an enigma and elusive mood in his subjects.
