Good To Know: Stretched, condition report available upon request; Asking Price: POA (Price On Application); Arty-Fact: In his Head Series, Farizwan explores the factors that determine and influence personal identity. The face is covered by rich and luscious vegetation, a reflection on the similarities passed down through generations. Cultural symbols are subtly incorporated into the work as an exploration of the influences and determinants of identity in society. There is no clear indication of the gender, age, race, religion or personality of the figure. These ‘Identity Indicators’ are deliberately left out. A trademark of Farizwan’s work, an expansive conversation is encouraged in a witty and playful manner. The figure is present in front of the viewer but cocooned within itself, in a private and personal space that the viewer is not privy to, engaging and withholding simultaneously.
