Abstract

This study aims to translate a research justification based on the issues and trends of internet social phenomena through practical practice in fine arts. The issue of the latest internet social phenomenon is always a topic of debate and causes controversy among the general public. This narrative is the essence of the theme for the Malaysian contemporary painter Ruzzike Harris in adapting events, culture, popular characteristics, sensations with subjects include objects or figures related to the current phenomenon. The methodology applied is through Sandell's approach as an alternative to understanding practically the narrative content of visual imagery through the form, theme and context of the artwork creation. There are three terms outlined to create a layer of meaning from visual grammar including form, theme and context. The research data is analyzed through five works by Ruzzeki Harris which includes three of his solo exhibitions namely 'Gone Viral' in 2015, 'Possessed: A Series of Visual Critiques' in 2016 and 'Playing God' in 2017. The findings of the study show three terms as a main points to help researchers in narrative analysis process that includes the integration of the relationship between the appearance of the form and the theme, the integration of the relationship between the theme and the context and the integration of the relationship between the context and the appearance of the form. The emergence of issues and themes of internet social phenomena among the community will always change according to the context and current trends, especially involving the convenience of social media platforms. The same case with the role of a contemporary painter to re-represent the narrative of this issue as a form of social criticism in the context of contemporary painting in Malaysia.
