This piece is busy with movement, portraying a wash of electric blue over the canvas, but it is no less splendid than Ismail Latiff’s other spectacular pieces. This colour plays quite a role in this piece; making up most of the canvas’ atmosphere and even Ismail Latiff’s omnipresent circle of perfection and balance. The colour shift, turn and twist as if blown by a strong gust of wind, sweeping through the entire canvas. Amid the chaos and flutter of wind however, lies the circle of balance, one that the artist explained was an embodiment of being one and whole with the universe.
