Anuardan Art Postcard
The series of art postcards (2004) that I bought from Pasar Seni Art Market few years back. I will send out this series of postcards to lucky postcrossers.
Anuardan (Malaysia) painting are well articulate, the houses strongly vertical and depicted in surrealistic and semi abstract ways. Figure in his works, exquisitely nuanced, are pale shadows. He has relayed an impeding sense of foreboding, of everything being ultimately mutable. Even the intricate and detailed works on these domiciles seem ephemeral. This very ambiguity is profoundly disturbing. His image are imposing but never tactile and the colour utilised, of 'ditch' hues of earth-based tone succeed in lending his creation a sense of antiquity.
