Inventory Artwork by Dato Sharifah Fatimah

 

“Tales of Solace” is Dato’ Sharifah Fatimah Syed Zubir Barakbah’s latest visual chronicle, inspired by her past travels to the Middle East and the Balkans. Her personal stories of solace and solitude are expressed in the purest form: elegant patterns of streaks and markings of the palette knife on the canvas, spread over and across mesmerizing voids in a harmonious mélange of colours.

The unique “Pattern of Dream”, for example, uses acrylic, modeling paste and eucalyptus bark, with a sensational prism of colours.

“Faces of Postojna” depicts Postojna Cave in Slovenia, the world’s longest publicly accessible cave, which also serves as a concert hall. The cave trail is 5.3km long. The artist was inspired after visiting the Balkan states with her family in August 2018. There are three versions of “Faces of Postojna”.

Another distinctive series of paintings, inspired by the iridescent colours of the Rose City’s eroded quartzose sandstones and the glorious archaeological wonder of Petra – include “Floating”, “Solace”, “Standing Forms”, “Link”, “Solitude” and “Redscape”.
