“Artists should not be too direct, and be more creative with their messages.” That is exactly the stand Fauzul Yusri takes as he creates yet another unfathomable yet curiosity-evoking piece. Despite the sandy, calm brown he takes on throughout this piece of artwork, random and sporadic forms of grey masses decorate the canvas – as if floating or suspended, even. Formless markings, scratching and scarring also appear here and there. In its entirety, the message is quiet yet bold, honest yet a little distorted.
