Night and Day.... Abu Yusof


Night and Day ... 4'x5' Acrylic on Canvas

After buying Pak Zawi painting my art craze seeped in again. I have been avoiding gallery and art exhibition simply because I am running out of wall to hang my collections. Now I am breaking the rules again and today I bought another exciting art piece titled “ Night and Day” by Abu Yusof. The abstract painting reflects the current chaotic social ills and mad race that made differentiation between good and bad so faint. Luckily God made night and day otherwise we would not know when to stop work and sleep. We will be lost in the chase for wealth and power because, truth and honesty does not matter anymore.

This art piece from Abu Yusof reminds me not to be trapped in the rat race and pollution of the mind. I have to swim away from the strong current that dragging me to the ocean. I am happy in my port and with my new art piece “ Night and Day”. For those who love art, see if you could relates yourself with this exciting work from Abu Yusof. Break away from bad politics be it in the office or at Bagan Pinang.

Oh Dato'
You are very lucky. I was going to invite Abu Yusof to join along to the exhibition. However I think hes not coming because hes under my friend R's group. Being so, because R and I disagreed on the pricing of paintings to TV3 I have lost that chance to bring Abu Yusof along.
Glad you managed to purchase one of the beautiful artworks from Pahang.

Dato' Jaff,
Night n Day. Very apt painting to reflect the present time in Malaysia. Hopefully daylight will prevail soon and let our children walk the lighted path.
Thank you for entertaining my son Azrin's request to have himself photographed with you beside his dad's painting. I will need the photo to blog in LAISI. I don't know if my other son Azuan dia make it to your open house as his wife was at school until way past noon.

Slm DM,
Regret that things do not work out between you and your artist friend. Abu Yusof has quite an interesting work and as you said I now contribute to the development of Pahang artist.

Wish you all the best in your upcoming exhibition.

maaf dato'..
(sekarang baru saya tahu)
tak dapat habiskan masa lebih lama dengan dato hari tu..
dan terima kasih atas perhargaan ini..
saya tidak tahu sebenar2nya apa masaalah R dengan mamasita.. walau saya percaya dengan setiap permasalah ada jalan penyelesaian.. tapi (setelah mengenali dan berkawan baik dengan R selama lebih 25 tahun)
adalah natural saya menarik diri bila dengar R tarik diri dari exibit di TV3 tu.. i believe there will be other opportunity for us..

Salam Datuk
Apologies tak dapat attend your open house. Pak Abu was very late in getting home from golf in Lembah Beringin; almost 4pm baru sampai balik. I wanted so much to be there, at least to meet up with fellow bloggers. takder rezeki jugak.

Salam Yusof,
Terima kasih kerana hantarkan lukisan saya dan gembira dapat bertemu sdr dan DR. Mengenai R dan Mamasita, saya sependapat yang setiap masallah ada penyelesaiannya. Semoga usaha dari pelbagai pihak ini dapat kembangkan lagi artis dari Pahang dan seterusnya cabang seni lukis negara.

Selamat berjaya dan inshaAllah kita akan dapat sembang lebih dimasa akan dtg.

Salam Kama,
Don't worry about it there is always next year or other occasion we could meet. But you missed nasi berayni, laksa johor, kambing bakar, sirap bandung and cendol bangi yesterday hehee.

Maybe I will share the occasion in pictorial soon. My regards to Pak Abu.

Dato',
Sayangnya, I miss your Open House and the nice food. I just couldn't get away from the kitchen because the first half of the day I had to do my duty outside the house. Have been like that this month since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Foundation I am with has organized series of events.
Hope to see you and Datin at Mamasita's Art Exhibition. Salam

You are doing noble work there for family and Brest Cancer program.

Actually my open house was juz simple occasion with simple food hehee. Ya hope to catch up again at Mamasita's Art Exhibition

Hai Cahaya,
Abu Yusof memang berbakat besar dan berjiwa besar. Sama juga dengan Cahaya yang punyai bakat besar dalam lukisan kad dan puisi. Tahniah kerana dapat bertukar karya dengan Abu Yusof... mungkin lebih banyak pertukaran akan berlaku akan datang dengan insan seni lain.

Saya pernah tinggal di Kluang dalam tahun akhir 60n banyak kenangan nakal disana heheee.
