Erizal AS would like to convey rhythm that is present in his daily life, in a subjective way, of course, and without the technical reason to modify rhythm and putting it into what we call music. What is interesting to note is his effort to create relations of meaning amongst the musical instruments, human figures, and nature. The significance of the three elements is evidence in the expressive conspicuous strokes of his paintings – as if they are catharsis intent on giving nothing to spare.
The meaning shaped by the relations of rhythm, human, and nature in Erizal’s paintings visibly shows a life narration that strongly represents figures which are dynamic, emotive, and clearly open. His choice of musical instruments such as the piano, guitar, saxophone and violin is merely to show that there are differences when it comes to individualistic expressions.
And what meaning could we expect from the narration of live by rhythm, or in this case, from music? In music rhythm we can find different breath of life narrations: tragedy, comedy, and irony.
