The NN Gallery, the German Alumni Association KL and the Goethe- Institut Malaysia are showing an exhibition by a German-Malaysian artist couple, Brigitte & Azzudin Shahabudin from Hamburg and JB. The two artists have worked many years as a team, and they are showing their common and individual works for the first time in Malaysia.
The theme of their work by the title of „Stimulus“ expresses the aesthetics and mysteries of the human form. They are inspired by the paintings of the Old European and Eastern Masters and they go as far back as the Middle Ages of the 12th Century.
It is Brigitte and Azzudin’s aim to promote cultural unity and harmony when they claim that the genius of the Old Masters of the East and the West must be treasured and preserved in the world of Arts. It goes without saying that Rudyard Kipling’s motto of „East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet“ becomes obsolete and meaningless to them.
The two artists express their ideas in their own different ways through painting and by use of oil on canvas or on wood and by using watercolor on structured torchon paper.
The Exhibition will be officially opened by the Chairman of the German Alumni Association Kuala Lumpur, Datuk M.Feisol Hassan on Saturday, 13th June at 12 noon.
