Sin Sin Fine Art takes great pleasure in presenting "Late Night Contemplation", a solo exhibition by FauZie As'Ad - an Indonesian artist based in Liechtenstein, from 19 March onwards. To FauZie, the late night moments of silence and tranquility are the best times for his artistic "contemplation". It is when all that has happened during the day, be it reality or imagination, comes pouring out with immense energy onto his canvas. His canvas opens a door not only for audiences to understand his dynamic inner world, but also for FauZie himself, who depicts his own travelling experiences while he wanders in his works. "The process is a contemplation in silence, of my subconscious feelings about the past or hopes for the future, all coming into my mind and being transferred into a painting." There are also symbols which he creates for himself and refers to as "signs fiction", sometimes unreadable yet meaningful to him.
Having born in Bekasi, studied in Yogyakarta, lived and worked since 1995 in the Principality of Liechtenstein which is located between Switzerland and Austria, being a traveler seems to be FauZie's destiny. With his family coming from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, FauZie has been acquainted with questions of identity since he was a little boy. He recognized and embraced his differences with an open loving heart, and this character is also reflected through the "Yin and Yang" quality of his works. Being an Asian living in Europe may seem like a struggle, but FauZie sees it in the "Yin Yang" way, how complementary opposites are interconnected within a greater whole, constantly interacting and transforming each other. "It is how we exist and be different from each other. You see both sides, just like Yin and Yang in my works, it is borderless and this is life itself."
As an artist, FauZie continues his journeys around the world while exhibiting in various countries such as Italy, France, Germany, China, Greece, Senegal and U.S.A. His works are a redirection of his feelings and insights while he was far away from home, through his stylistic combination of form, color and space. His paintings also portray travelling idioms like rocks, mountains, stairs, feather pens and handwritten notes, often spontaneous and with no fixed form; just as how FauZie is open for every possibility, always ready to build a "bridge" between differences, always ready to make a friend.
Sin Sin Fine Art 誠意向你推介長居列支敦士登(Liechtenstein)的印尼藝術家FauZie As’Ad 的個人畫展，展題為「夜幕下的沉思」而展期則由本年3月19日開始。對FauZie As’ad來說，深夜萬籟俱寂時便是創作「沉思」的最佳時刻。那時，日間所發生的一切事情，無論是現實或幻想都變成無限動力，傾注在他的畫布上，不但將觀眾引進他澎湃的內心世界，而且亦令他更了解自己。他的作品載滿了他的遊歷經驗。「整個作畫過程就是在寂靜中沉思，以及我潛意識中對過去或未來盼望的感覺，我將腦海中這種感覺轉化為一幅畫。」他亦為自己創造了一些圖像，稱之為「符號小說」。這些圖像有時無法解讀，但對他來說卻饒有意義。
FauZie生於 Bekasi ，在Yogyakarta 受教育及由1995年起在位於瑞士和奧地利之個的列支敦士登生活和工作，對他來說，到處遊歷似是必然的。他的家庭有著不同的種族及宗教背景，從兒時起他便已習慣了面對關於身份的問題。他以開放及充滿愛心的態度認同及包容這些差異，而他的性格亦在他的作品的「陰與陽」特性中反映出來。作為一個在歐洲生活的亞洲人，他或許要力爭上游，但FauZie卻以「陰與陽」的方法從容面對，思考將互為補足的對立之處與整體互相聯繫起來，彼此不時互動及作出改變。「這是我們存在的方式，彼此是有差異的。你在我的作品中兩方面都見得到，就像作品中的「陰與陽」一樣。這是無邊界的，而生命就是這樣。」
