Longing Memories Trio by Chok Yue Zan, Nik Husyaidie & Viko Zhijune


Longing Memories is an exhibition of paintings involving three young contemporary talents namely Chok Yue Zan, Viko Zhijune and Nik Husyaidie. Still in their early 20s, these three young artists graduated from the local art universities, Dasein Academy of Art and UiTM. These young talents have been actively taking part in exhibitions and gradually making their marks in the art scene.

Longing Memories represents the artists’ thoughts that are strongly infatuated by their childhood memories. For this exhibition, the three artists focus on their reminiscences and experiences during their youth, collection of images from their travels and channels of emotions. The works talk about stories that surfaced in their life and all of them choose images of nature to represent their emotions, stories and hopes.

Yue Zan’s paintings, combining figures from old photographs with the nature’s scenes, project the sadness and changes he experienced throughout his childhood. Nik Husyaidie is very much playing with compositions and colourful outcomes as a result of his study on textures, colours and shapes in nature, apart from incorporating some of the inspirations he received from his travels. Meanwhile, the theme in Viko’s works projects her inner struggles. She uses images of plants, leaves and grass to represent her unstable, fretful and sad feelings.
