my artwork from TRIVISTHA exhibition at S14 Bandung Indonesia, May 2010.
here is the main idea of this exhibition:
“Pure Essence flowing in the form of intentions which are projected inside reason and knowledge, are wrapped in everyday behavior. It is the result of many sublime processes, but often are not captured by the senses. Thus, inside every individual a uniqueness is hidden, inevitably, different way of seeing and rhythms of the body are also affected in translating that Pure Essence. The very existence of individuals are fused interacting with one another, a cycle, which is blown into three-poles.”
I tried to show the process of learning which collided by things that are physical, tangible, and technical. They represent humans’ limitations but also humans’ potential. This is the beginning of the learning process I experienced myself, as one of His creation, as human being, and as part of everything that surrounds me.
In terms of visuals, there are some representations that are visible through forms, such as time, space, then different places and bodies which are reassumed into symbols. In fact all those things are tied together in the cycle of life, but when the spiritual nature of learning begins, all the things I mentioned will melt and we will detach our bonds to them.
The technique I used is foam cutting, which follows the outline drawings I did intuitively. I made two sections in my works, one part is the big picture, and the other are the remaining pieces of polyfoam that I did not used and collated back to make new compositions.
Similar to the process of learning, a filter is needed, then we have to process what we have learned. What is not useful today may be useful for tomorrow or in the future. And knowing the self process is from what have been learned from inner self. In the cycle of life, a certain level of learning will free mundane aspects, in proportion with the level of understanding.
