Higher Order Love
Malaysian artist Hasanul Isyraf Idris’ latest solo exhibition is the third chapter of his Higher Order Love (HOL) series: Chapter 3, Scab: Lucky Draw uses formal properties of drawing to evoke a sense of nostalgia that may be felt in the event of estrangement or mourning. The HOL series is said to “uncover a universe which renders memories and snippets of the artist’s life into visual interpretations through various elements in drawing”.
