The Light Between Walls
Matt Enamel on Treated Wood, Acrylic, Metal, Mirrors, Light
The Light Between Walls is a continuation of my 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."
