The Paintings

‘Masonry’ series is Faris’s exploration of identity, history, and the symbiotic relationship between human-made structures and the natural world. He is fascinated by the ability of bricks and stones to hold stories, memories, and cultural significance within their very essence. He seeks to capture the serene beauty of Indonesia’s landscape, inspired by the rhythmic arrangement of stepping stones found throughout the country. The stones that vary in size, color, and composition, reflects the diversity of Indonesia’s geological formations. Smooth river pebbles, worn by the passage of time, offer a gentle and comforting tread, while rough-hewn stones evoke the ruggedness of volcanic landscapes. Each stone, brings unique shape and texture, invites contemplation and connection with the environment allowing him to fully absorb the tranquility and beauty of their surroundings.
