Ismail Abdul Latiff’s figurative oeuvre stands as a testament to his consummate mastery of form and expression. Through a deft fusion of classical technique and contemporary vision, Latiff’s figurative artworks exude a captivating synthesis of realism and introspective paradigm. Viewing this painting is like staring into the vastness of space. It’s a spectacle of dark and light blue colours, with Ismail Latiff’s every present moon in sight. These are the kinds of scenes that one only sees in their dreams or in their thoughts; they are exceedingly difficult to describe and even harder to reimagine. No place is better than our dreams, and no one other than Ismail Latiff is a better painter of those visions.
