Position was exhibited at the Malaysian Contemporary Art Exhibition titled Warna in Hong Kong featuring five established Malaysian artists namely Yusof Ghani, Awang Damit Ahmad, Daud Rahim, Jamil Mat Isa and Fauzul Yusri in 2008. The vast canvas is painted in dark shades of green with white highlights emerging from the background. A celebration of pure and balanced forms of colour, shape, text and texture, the entire composition is filled with clear instinct and intent of the artist.
