Condition Report: Signed “Ismail Latiff” on lower middle of each
Notes: Ismail Latiff often transports his viewers to another world where everything is carefree, serene and tranquil. His pieces often feature the theme of escapism, as if in a dream or gazing upon galaxies or even water. Omnipresent in his works is also the circle that deck the canvas, drawing the attention of the viewers. It is a symbol of perfection a balance, explained the artist, an embodiment and search to be one and whole with the universe. The No. 3 is only subtly different from No. 1, this offers the cognisance that this piece is in motion, moving from its original position as portrayed in the earlier piece. The flecks of light blue have now travelled to the right. The entire mood is tranquil, soothing and calm, one that takes away your worries and provides one with the perfect haven and the unadulterated escape.
