NIZAR KAMAL ARIFFIN
Acrylic on canvas
The lines signify spirituality, liberty, faith and personal growth, and as one can see, they are all interwoven and connected in the world (the canvas). Despite the state that the lines are in, a thick line is present in the midst of all the chaos, one that Nizar Kamal Ariffin defines as a line that “embodies one’s faith in the Creator to guide one through the good and bad of life”. Other times, it may represent the ruler of a country or a district, those who are responsible for leading other people. The lighter space in this piece signifies balance in life, and contextually, it means that we need faith to have balance in life.
