Interview with artist Haffendi Anuar for @floorrmagazine

“As a child, I had always enjoyed painting landscapes, jungle scenes and mountainscapes. I think the first serious artwork I remember completing was a landscape painting in washy watercolour of a landscape of a lake with two skinny swans. I studied sculpture at art schools and the thinking process behind my work has always been around the object. Sculpture has always have a strong relationship to the landscape, with public sculptures responding to the context of the area or the landscape as well as land art in the 1960s and 70s. Thus I have always wanted to link my undying interest in the landscape, but explore the expanded notion through objects. This idea of the landscape that I am interested in is not always something physical, it could be a “dimension” informed by design, object, politics and the Internet.”
