Faira Aris

b. Malaysia

For Faira Aris, her art is a spiritual practice. Through her work, she honors her faith as well as her Malay heritage.
Connecting to her Malay roots, Faira focuses in on the theme and act of weaving, tenunan, and what it can represent. Demonstrating minimalistic, closely linked forms, Faira reflects on the notion of “weaving” in a multitude of ways –  as a barricade between a woman and her God, as well as an elusive network that intertwines the spiritual realm and physical world. Demonstrating the connection between her and her Creator, Faira’s 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 unwavering faith in the religion.
