Born 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 portray an enigmatic and elusive mood in his subjects. His brushes of colour create rough silhouettes in an expressionistic manner with details, contours and crevices accurately captured. Aptly titled ‘Golden Space’, this artwork is filled a brush of dominant golden hue that stands out against the black background. It’s only when you take a step back when you discern that the hue makes up a number of objects like scissors, a basket, butterflies, tree branch, crown cage, faucet and many more. This is interspersed with splashes of pastel which grants the artwork more depth and fills it with intrigue.
