Selected Series: 2005 – 2017

A Solo Exhibition by Suzlee Ibrahim

June 2021

“Suzlee Ibrahim: Selected Series 2005 – 2017” is the 42nd solo exhibition in his 34-year career as an artist. Showcasing at G13 Gallery from June 30 until July 17, the exhibition celebrates the best of Suzlee Ibrahim’s oeuvre, featuring 14 large-scale paintings.

Suzlee Ibrahim carefully chooses the artworks from different series based on his personal preference. Since 1987, he has produced 20 series with various sizes of works.

The paintings of Suzlee Ibrahim are the manifestations of his innermost feelings about his travels throughout his career as an artist.

The artwork titled “Sakura Series: Ueno Park” dated 2008 and measuring 183cm by 244cm, the acrylic and oil on canvas work illustrates the magnificence of the sea of cherry blossoms during spring in Japan.

Executed in a minimal palette of white, red and black, the impression of the pink blossoms is derived from the artist’s gestural splatters in red and liberal black line marks against the white background.

The painting titled “Batik Series: Red Batik”, which was created between 2007 and 2008 measures 153cm by 183cm, has a “denser” aesthetic, emulating the busy patterning of batik motifs. Layers of vivid colour from his signature red to white, black and a hint of blue placed in juxtaposition to each other form an abstract rendition of a batik fabric pattern from Terengganu.

The artworks in this exhibition include “Ocean Park” (2005); “Sea Festival I (2006-2007); “Red Heliconia” (2014); “Waterfall” (2011–2013); “Dark Fire” (2009); “Middle of the Night” (2009); “Waterfall Series: Rhythm” (2009); “Moon Cake Festival No 8” (2017); “Ombak Merah No 1” (2008–2009); “Ombak Merah No 2” (2008–2009); “Forest” (2010–2013); and “Lion Dance No 9” (2008).
