In Yunizar’s art, many things become impossible – this is caused by the difficulty of finding patterns of representation. His paintings do not show synonymous forms, specific associations or perceptional lines that construct immediately recognizable codes, signs, metaphors or symbolic meaning. The forms in his paintings arise organically, occasionally corresponding with reality, but more often than not abandoning it

Elang & Ikan Merah also reminds us of the versatility of Yunizar’s different artistic practices as the red fish at the bottom of the canvas bears striking similarities to one of the artist’s first wooden sculptures entitled Fish. While Yunizar’s strange but endearing characters are indeed testament to his ever-expanding imagination, they also evidence the intricacies of his long-standing and established career.
