JAAFAR LATIFF VISION 7/86 NOTEPAD
$3.90 SGD– Sold Out
The Vision series expresses the chaotic energy of urban life during the mid-1980s, a period of rapid development in Singapore. Jaafar’s acrylic paintings are characterised
by a sense of movement, reflecting his ability to express himself more freely in acrylic. In contrast, Jaafar’s batik paintings seem constrained by the labour of the process.
This work showcases a masterful balance between freedom and control. The interplay between the bold curved brushstrokes and the meticulous angular ones in the composition suggests continuous motion progressing with clockwork precision. Jaafar’s acrylic
paintings often have grey backgrounds, instantly differentiating them from his batik works with darker backgrounds as a result of the multiple dye layers.
