Exhibition

Unreal Lives

Exhibiting Artists: Moeen Faruqi

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 14 Apr 2011 - 24 Apr 2011

Moeen Faruqi has earned a strong reputation as a painter of alienation in the modern world. His work conveys the angst of existence in an urban setting. Reflecting a global culture, our cities have become increasingly similar and even interchangeable. This globalization and uniformity also leads to greater estrangement and a sense of unbelonging.
 
Primarily narrative in nature, his work speaks through characters that stare out at the viewer, as if pleading for relief from distorted relationships and artificial interactions. Men, women, and even animals, enact an absurdist theatre that attempts to engage and elicit a response – perhaps of self-recognition – from the viewer. His latest work includes the Adam and Eve series: bright, vivid, forcefully colourful portraits that affirm the uniqueness of each individual, in an atmosphere where fashion produces an ironic and distubring homogeneity.
