Description: There’s much to rejoice, whether the occasion is a solitary smirk of satisfaction or with family and friends. Or more likely, the lilting rhythms of one’s surrounds, in the midst of Nature hopefully, where a sense of inner solace could be had. This work at the time of Dato’ Sharifah Fatimah Syed Zubir’s Joy Is The Theme exhibition at the NN Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, in 1997, certainly hints at some kind of emancipation, from a bad lull or attitude perhaps, but such is Nature that a combination of therapy and positivism opens up vistas of hope, industry and enterprise. The work comes at a time of the Second Coming of her more tactile Touch The Earth, and before reverting to the ecstasy of colours as in Jingga and Pancawarna. As she oft intoned: “Reality does not exist in material things. I’d rather paint the flying spirit of the bird than its feathers. I want the colours to pulsate with the spiritual rhythm of life.”Dato’ Sharifah is a major second-generation artist alongside Latiff Mohidin, Datuk Ibrahim Hussein, Datuk Syed Ahmad Jamal and Dr. Choong Kam Kow. Her last major exhibition was Song Of Eucalyptus at the Segaris Art Centre, Kuala Lumpur, from Sept 5 to Oct 31, 2017. She was from the pioneering batch of fine art students from the Mara Institute of Technology (now a university), graduating in 1971. Next was a BFA at Reading University, England, in 1973-1976, and her MFA at the Pratt Institute, New York, in 1976-1978, under the JDR III Fund fellowship. Her major awards include the Minor Award in the Malaysian Landscape competition (1972), Major Award in the Young Contemporary Artists (1981), Major Award in the Salon Malaysia (1979), and 3rd Prize in the Islamic World Biennial in Tehran, Iran (2003). She was conferred a Dato’ship by the Sultan of Kedah in 2006.
