The Parallel Cosmos juxtaposes paintings by two artists of differing origins and life paths who nevertheless share common ground in their belief that the creative process is not so much about the creation of something new as it is about a life journey towards self-awareness. Their faith in the immense capacity of the human mind and its will to expression has led to Fadjar Sidik and Hsiao Chin traversing in the metaphysical space of the cosmos to seek higher, supreme truths. In the presently exhibited works, Hsiao Chin and Fadjar Sidik have sought out higher orders beyond the observable realities of life. They have found, in the vast visual vocabulary of abstraction, an invigorating release from the limitations of representational art. They have encountered - in the cosmos - a visual and conceptual realm that allowed them to articulate new horizons of existence.
