Head over to Taksu Gallery in KL to check out Fendy Zakri’s solo exhibition, “Moonlight Fragment”.

The series sees geometrical lapses of the moon with solid colours, interspersed with marking and tracing techniques that enable the viewer to move between the different hues and to view them as an individual fragment.
