Matrix is Faizal Yunus’s first solo exhibition. The opening reception will be held on the 22nd of November (Tuesday), from 6 – 9 pm.
Matrix features artworks that display traces of everyday objects composed into abstract compositions or visual poetry and incorporate techniques of printmaking and painting. In the tradition of printmaking, a matrix is an object or a surface in which an imprinted image originates from. In Faizal’s practice, his matrix is a dense surface composed of a variety of objects sourced from his domestic setting or from his workplace such as rubber bands, bubble wrap, fabrics, strings and bits of cardboard. Indistinct and definite objects jostle for attention in the compositions and Faizal would prior to printing, create the compositions on a flat surface and then press either a piece of paper or canvas onto the objects, imprinting the contours and silhouettes. The mark-making process is intuitive and includes the act of careful planning while being open to slippages and mistakes. Treating his works almost like a recording of his environment, the imprints are believed by the artist to articulate his spiritual, physical and living conditions in this moment in time.
