The “Chronicles of Lines” exhibition will take place from 19 April to 10 May 2012 at Kuala Lumpur’s Taksu Gallery. It can be seen as a study of opposite notions; abstraction and representation, conscious and subconscious, intentional and accidental.
Born in 1958, Khairul Izham is a graduate in Plastic Arts from the Universiti Tektnologi Mara of Shah Alam, a city in Selangor, Malaysia. The artist often uses the same method to create his line-based works: he first draws spontaneously, and he then allows himself to be guided by intuition.

The Taksu Gallery will organise a collective exhibition from 5 to 26 April 2012.
The exhibition will bring together the works by seven Filipino artists: Bernardo Pacquing, Cris Villanueva Jr., Elaine Navas, Hubert San Juan, Juan Alcazaren, Lyle Buencamino, and Nilo Ilarde.
“No Talking Points” is the result of the artistic compulsion linking the artists together. It drives them to make works which transcend the “insoluble tension between verbal and visual speeches”, as explained by the press release.
The artists all work individually during the “silences” between the different negotiations taking place between the artists creating conditions and the public. Altogether, they celebrate the emptiness which occurs between ideas.
Founded in 1989, The Taksu Gallery is one of the most important contemporary galleries of Southeastern Asia.
