GURIS: Solo Exhibition by Fauzulyusri
TAKSU Kuala Lumpur, 7 July – 31 September 2011
TAKSU Kuala Lumpur is pleased to announce Guris, a solo exhibition by local artist Fauzulyusri. Guris, Fauzulyusri’s new suite of paintings and lino-prints, follows his long preoccupation with mark making and the way a line can imbue character or spirit in a painting. Largely an exhibition of portraits – an artist, a couple, a friend and fellow artists – Fauzul moves us beyond traditional understandings of ‘portraiture’ to embrace the surface that surrounds the sitter. Here he embeds details within the painting’s surface – a little like a tattoo scratched into the skin – where its design, colour and lines increasingly become the subject. It is an exciting take on contemporary identity and the role of painting today.
FAUZULYUSRI (b. 1974, Kedah) As a full time artist, has participated in various group exhibitions in institutions and galleries throughout Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong. Among his past solo exhibitions are: “Ground” (2007), “Play” (2009) and “Raw” (2009). Fauzulyusri received his BA of Fine Arts from UiTM, Shah Alam, Malaysia in 1999. Fauzulyusri currently lives and works in Shah Alam, Selangor.
Exhibition runs from 7 July till 31 August 2011.
