heading new york series

 
The New York Series encompasses the period 1965 to 1969. These attempts reflect his Asian reaction towards the metropolitan Western world, in his case from rural Perak to the city of New York to face cultural shock and the ‘new comer's bewildered syndrome’. The organic-cum-geometric canvases he did then reflect the tension he experienced in the fast and hectic world of New York. He combined hard-edged shapes with impasto patches of textured areas embedded with sand pebbles in his oil compositions. This Series shows the application of formal contrasts resulting in visual dynamics, illusion are concocted and activate the space of the object in the mode of New York School. The colours are pushed or propelled backward or forward. Texture, handling and visual weight are explored deftly.
纽约系列创作于 1965 至 1969 年间。他尝试在作品中反央他从马来西亚近打乡区来到西方的大都会所面对的文化震撼以及面对繁华都市环境的挑战和压力。在这些油画作品中,他并列了有机形和几何形在同一画面上,以反映他在繁忙的纽约所经历的紧张心态。他以硬边图形配合沙石粗糙区域去构成画面。这种强烈造型对比营造了视觉的冲力。他以纽约画派的手法营造了幻觉并激活了物件造型间的空间关系。色彩呈现出冲前或退后的效果,肌理和视觉轻重的处理手法也恰到好处。
