Description: Peering outside, everything seems muddled, chaotic and blur; but when in one’s abode, clarity and structure is found once again. Within the confines of privacy and solitude, one can gain much-needed focus, which one can use to further his / her own goals. So take a while and be comfortable being in solitude. A still life study, first that caught attention would be the hanger with a towel hung on it.Rafiee Ghani won the Minor Award in the coveted Young Contemporary Artists exhibition (BMS) and won the Minor Award in the 1991 Salon Malaysia.
