Saiful will be presenting new large abstract paintings comprising of enamel paint on canvas from his series titled Vertical Speed, which started early this year. Work in this series explores the mechanical process of painting; govern by repetition, chance and control and uses industrial materials such as roller brushes and household gloss paint instead of traditional art materials. The artist has stated that the repetitive gestures and the use of non-art materials provide an opportunity to explore the element of spontaneity in painting and the slippages from controlled actions while framing painting as a procedural and ritualistic process.
This publication is published to accompany a solo presentation by Saiful Razman titled, Vertical Speed at Bazaar Art Jakarta 2015 from 27 to 30 August 2015.
