Dato Sharifah Fatimah Syed Zubir’s “Expression Series,” conceived during the mid-1990s, stands as an arresting testament to the artist’s profound engagement with the human psyche. Through an interplay of intricate brushwork and a nuanced colour palette, Zubir navigates the depths of emotional terrain. Her canvases become a canvas of introspection, where gestural strokes and chromatic layers coalesce in a dance of raw sentiment. In this series, Zubir masterfully employs chiaroscuro contrasts, guiding the viewer’s gaze across the contours of ethereal forms that seem to emerge from the very fabric of thought. The artist’s adept manipulation of negative space and texture conjures an enigmatic aura, hinting at the untold stories that reside within the recesses of each piece.
