G13 Project Room: Sirik-Sirik Alas by Nik Mohd Husyaidie
6 - 18Dec 2021
G13 Project Room is proud to present Sirik-Sirik Alas, a solo exhibition by a local emerging artist, Nik Mohd Husyaidie. This exhibition presents 12 artworks from Husyaidie that convey his reflection on nature, experienced during his involvement in Makyong theatre.
While working as a Peran (a comic) for three years in Makyong theatre during his study years in USM Penang, Husyaidie’s part in Makyong was primarily involved with the nature of the forest, which has sort of affected his art practice. This exhibition reflects his notion of nature, reinterpreted and transferred onto canvases, imbued with different compositions and colours. The title Sirik-sirik Alas was actually derived from Makyong’s script that he had been working on, where ‘Sirik’ means outskirts, while ‘Alas’ means forest. His artworks for this series are divided into three juxtaposition components: Sirik-sirik Alas 6, Sirik-sirik Alas 7, Sirik-sirik Alas 8; and three single pieces entitled Sirik-sirik Alas 2, Sirik-sirik Alas 5, Usia Alam.
The exhibition runs from 6 to 18 December 2021 at G13 Gallery.
