Malaysian artist Faizal Yunus’ latest exhibition is entitled, Vortex. 

The exhibition features 19 floor and wall-mounted canvas works. 

They are said to be a visual documentation of the artist’s response to pollution and global warming that result in "shifting landscapes".

The use of polyurethane and construction material such as nets, is said to symbolise the main pollutant.

According to the gallery’s press release, “Faizal documents this geological epoch by recreating imagined coastal lines and aerial view of landfills in the form of  [wall-mounted prints] as though the earth was sliced through from crust to core."

The circular floor works supposedly give the impression of islets of debris lost at sea. This is said to represent the Great Pacific Garbage Patch or the Pacific trash vortex which sparked him on his new work.
