Dato Sharifah Fatimah was born in Kedah in 1958 and is without doubt one of the greatest women artists in Malaysia today. She is not one to shy away from employing vibrant colours to her work as many of her pieces resemble a unique discourse between man and nature, seeking solitude in the greens, blues and warm washes of red representing the various elements of flora and fauna. She exhibits the true matters of the heart, mind and soul, how the thought processes are never muted and never silent, always showing their garish colours deep within. This particular piece resonates vibrancy, liveliness and vivacity. It is done in her usual loud-on-loud and contrasting colours, featuring daring streaks, blocks and lines to handsomely frame the bold-coloured fragments and shapes.
