The Light Between Walls

Matt Enamel on Treated Wood, Acrylic, Metal, Mirrors, Light


The Light Between Walls is a continuation of Faris' work that is about the constant negotiation of public spaces and those seeking refuge.

"Working with a grand dramatic overview, Faris has managed to create miniature dream-spaces using a sophisticated, abstracted visual language. Building on the earlier wall-mounted and columnar pieces, the artist has extended the play of light and shadow, visibility and hiddenness. Through clever control and manipulation of planes, he elevates his subject from a point of being covert to a beautiful clarity. Faris has overcome earlier issues of construction and colour to reach a fine resolution where themes of safety and coming out are elegantly articulated."

- Seah Tzi-Yan, Programme Curator of Young Talent Programme.

The Light Between Walls was created for the Young Talent Programme 2017/18 Winners' Solo Exhibition. The Young Talent Programme is an ION Art collaboration with the annual November edition of the Affordable Art Fair Singapore and is an award programme.
