House of Flower-Mastura AR

The artwork (extract)

House of Flower, House of Harmony is a mixed media collage created by the Malaysian woman artist Mastura Abdul Rahman in 1999. It shows a Congkak board in the midst of a circle expressing the beauty and harmony of traditional Malay culture. The artwork, which measures 183 cm x 276 cm, is owned by the National Art Gallery of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.

Mastura Abdul Rahman (1963- ) studied at the School of Art & Design, University Technology MARA (UITM) in Shah Alam (Petaling District, Malaysia). In the 1980s, she became involved with the Malay-Islamic revivalist movement. Her works reflect the new decorative impulses that have emerged within Malaysian art and are firmly rooted in her own sense of Malay-ness.

An earlier but similar work is Interior No. 29, which she created in 1987.
