Through the Segerak series, Yusof Ghani was able to explore the human figure as a symbol of life, which he then transformed into abstract statements to depict humanity’s contrasting realities of struggle and victory, aggression and celebration, realism and fantasy. Observations from his own experiences, travels and heritage are the source of energy, movement and tension which he captures through a combined expression of drawing and painting. The artist has come to realisation that time and space don’t matter; the human reality and aspirations are the same and are driven by the desire of building a better future.
