The figurative art in art history linked to the oldest tradition of art making. Since ancient civilization, the subject of a human body going through

different interpretation and backdrop from the resonance perspective of religious to the portrayal of everydayness in urban landscape. 

While the contemporary approaches might open up to further discussion, figurative art inexhaustibly fascinates artist alike. As the title,

‘Configuration’, literally translate as ‘an arrangement of parts or elements in a particular form, figure, or combination’, the exhibition intended

to yield a range of attitudes tackling the subject of figurative against a miscellany of each individual artists.


Figurative art never shy away from reconstruction of modern outlook. As Malaysian art consistently going through changes, the artistic

impulses in each artists' work influenced by the dichotomy of cultural lapse. The exhibition presenting the wide range of stylistic

approaches from Realism to Surrealism, and, Expressionism to Pop Art – all the more distinctively present an understanding towards

 Western art historical canon. Profoundly, reconciliation of East and West producing an exciting prospect of modernity against the Malaysian

sociocultural background.


While the exhibition purportedly traded in figurative art theme, nevertheless it resonate the thumping effort to promote Malaysian talents in

face of contemporary art. With such globalization has taken its toll beyond the traditional virtue, art has move away from the Western

institutionalization. An inevitable of art to thrive in such peripheral sphere evidenced of such phenomena. The artworks may show an intricacies

of artist’ reality, as being in the diverse subjectivity, from the issues of identity to cosmic revelation, is all encompassed to celebrate human for humanity.
