This piece is the final work from the Rising Sun series; romantic, cool and serene are the moods conveyed, as it is that perfect moment – when the sun gently caresses the skies. This work is depicted on the back cover of Koh’s book, ‘Artistic Imperatives, Selected Writings and Paintings’ published by Maya Press Sdn Bhd in 2004. The Rising Sun IV was formerly part of Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s collection.
