Faira Aris

b. Malaysia

Faira Aris’ work speaks of the connection between her and her Creator. Her poetic understanding of The Almighty is implied meditatively by using coloured pencils on bare canvas, muted intones. Altogether, these forms represent the pillars of Islam and her own unfailing faith toward the religion.
Her Malay roots are emphasised by the weaving (tenunan) act, demonstrating minimalistic, closely-linked forms. It  represents a barricade between a woman and her God; elusive to the common senses, a suggestive indication of the connections between spiritual realms and the physical world.
