Description: ISMAIL ABDUL LATIFF (B. Melaka, 1955) Ocean Red Sky... Shadow Dance, 1999 Signed “Ismail Latiff” on lower middle Acrylic on paper 76 x 56 cm

Condition Report: Signed “Ismail Latiff” on lower middle

Notes: Red – the colour of power, intimidation, anger and passion. The colour of invigoration and of life, of vim and vigour. It evokes feelings of intensity, as seen in this piece. Inundated with the bold colour of red, Ismail Lati kept his usual calm blues and colours that soothe the soul for something so strong and commanding. It captures the sunset at the right time, just seconds before it disappears into the horizon – painting the sky and everything around it red. The faint circle of balance poses as the sun here, as Ismail captures one of the most amazing views. Ismail Lati is a Melaka-born artist who trained formally in arts at MARA Institute of Technology. His artworks of both the mystical and abstract kind are known locally and internationally. Having started o his career in advertising before switching to fine arts, his philosophy of life and work is “Art is Life and one of the best introduction to art is Nature.”
