This is last part of my posting for Art Expo Malaysia 2013.
This mix-media art by Mr Lee Kyung-Lim (Korea). Viewing from far, I thought it was made from porcelain (similar to the tile art of the middle east). I was wrong. A closer look revealed that it was made from paper and cupboard.
Every piece of art is like a peeping into the artist’s mind, or learning the message conveyed by the artist.
Some are good to look at without too much thinking.
Some require explanation from the artists to understand the embedded message.
Some are interesting to look at, with some humours.
Part of the same painting by Duxi (China).
Some innovative media and shape.
Each piece of art appeals to different audience.
Another nice batik drawing by Mr Chuah.
In the past, most paintings were a form of historical record of event or legends.
Some paintings records many details about specific culture and lifestyle.
Exposure to the culture during my travel to the similar places gives me one level of appreciation of the details recorded in some of these art works.
It is interesting to see the different expression made by every artist. The end result is the impression of the artist about the subject.
Visiting museums and art galleries also allow us to learn more about oneself.
We could explore what we like, what we dislike.
What we agree and disagree could tell us about our believe system.
I am fully contented with my short visit to the expo.
