Multidiscplinary Visual Artist

Hello...I am Fazryn Anuar. I am a Multidisciplinary Visual Artist, specialising in abstraction. None of my works are based on any mathematical or scientific principles. Lately I have become obsessed by austerity of colour, texture, pattern and line. I have a feel for trends and whats hip. I was born in the late 70’s and I am at awe with the 80’s and 90s. I love vibrant colours in all aspects be it in reality or imaginary.

My work is about connecting movement, colour and mood. Inspired by architecture, flags, patterns, graphics. The layer of paint, the depth of colours, and the variation of the application, create dynamic and alluring abstractions. Each piece capturing the emotion of that moment in time in my continuous search for happiness. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter.   The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.  Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings.  During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.

In the beginning of 2010, I started getting involved with sustainability and wanted to incorporate in my painting. I became aware of materials as sustainable in my work and how I apply it. I adopted using a traditional method of painting. The use of water-based natural dyes, wax and fabric, colours are applied in layers starting from light to dark. More control is gained over the intensity of the dyes by applying them by paintbrush as opposed to submerging the fabrics within the dyes themselves. This revolutionary approach allowed to create detailed, refined images with dramatically enhanced tonality, shading and depth. I explore pattern and repetition for the dream-like experience it offers me. I began developing my “In Pursuit of Happiness” series (each 110x120cm) where each piece is a geometric abstract illustration. This particular series took me four years to complete with each piece over thirty days to finish which in total I managed to complete 44 pieces.
