In this show, the Sri Lankan-born artist examines a range of faces and deconstructs them with his signature dominant brushstrokes. The layered pieces give a more conceptual reality to that which is purely physical.
Texture and layering are highly important elements in these works, as noted by the artist himself, and they are taking his style towards a more abstract direction. Contrasting and irregular colours add to this unreality as he seeks to create works not seated in precise likeness but rather overall experience.
