Olexandr Pinchuk

Olexandr Pinchuk

Born:
Ukraine, 1986

Education:
Master of Laws, studied at the International Law Institute and Plekhanov Russian University of Economics

Since 2013, Olexandr Pinchuk has been engaged in object art and is a teacher and speaker for students in the field of interior and object design. Participant of contemporary art exhibitions in Moscow, Russia and Kharkov, Ukraine. Collaborates with contemporary collection art galleries in New York, Brussels, Amsterdam and Kyiv.

Pinchuk creates art objects and multimedia installations. All works are aimed at the search and identification of mental and cultural characteristics, the search for answers to questions of human existence and society. For him, the creation of an object is a special story, a story without words. A conversation through an object is an attempt to reach the viewer through emotions, feelings, images.

Pinchuk directs the creation of the short animated film “The Big Vault” based on the poem by Taras Shevchenko. The poem is a philosophical and mystical story about life and death, past, present and future.

Annemarieke van Peppen

Annemarieke van Peppen

Born:
Rotterdam, 1971

Education:
Fashion at the Academy of Arts and Industry (AKI) in Enschede

Annemarieke van Peppen’s art is characterised by her continous evaluation of the impact of social media on our lives, that shape and challenge our perception of the world in real. She is particularly interested to reveal the beauty of imperfect human beings. Through photography and repetition, she creates images assembled as a collage. Every piece of the image or the photograph printed on pieces of paper in different size, textures and colours. Those pieces of paper have been in turn made for different purpose than photo paper, like newspaper or joss paper (coloured paper used as offerings, common in Chinese culture).

For her recent project THE HERO IN YOU, exhibited at the Bruijs shipyard, Bergen op Zoom, Van Peppen photographed Ukrainian women refugees to help them cope with their traumatic experiences. The women are seen wearing their self-made amulets and clothes as reminder for the mother country they have been forced to leave. It was also an art collaboration project of Van Peppen with 4 other Ukrainian artists.

The exhibition In Infinity – The End, Annemarieke van Peppen will show her newest works, greatly inspired by the Trimurti philosophy of Balinese Hindu. The Trimurti (from Sanskrit) are the trinity of supreme divinity in Hinduism, in which the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction are personified as a triad of deities. Typically, the designations are that of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. The effect of this holy trinity is the philosophy embracing the concept that everything happens in one’s life is necessary to strike the balance and to complete the infinite circle of lives.

Van Peppen is a socially engaged artist, involved in several charitable projects in The Netherlands and Indonesia.

Putut Wahyu Widodo

Putut Wahyu Widodo

Putut Wahyu Widodo is an artist living and working in Semarang, Indonesia. His works reflect his background as a journalist and editor of one of the leading newspaper in Java. He finds his inspiration in news and media events. The blurry images in his paintings are reminiscences of  frozen captures of the video or film frames.

As a painter-cum-visual editor, Putut is especially aware and sensitive towards the power of images. In commercial photography and art, and in particular advertising, the meaning must be clear and distinct and most importantly must provoke a desire to consume. Similarly, Art can communicate feelings and emotions, or thoughts and ideas. These portraits exemplify a modern realism where graphic abstraction, semi-Cubist elements, and figuration meet to create images which are ‘less’ portraits of people and ‘more’ about the creation of a mood, an emotional state, and even alienation. The portraits are more than a mere visual artistic rendition of human gestures and poses. Putut’s task is to reveal what resides underneath the surface appearance of observed empirical reality. The images are mainly free of perspective and have an intensity of line, a flatness of form, minimal use of colour, and most importantly, a harmony of all over design. An aesthetic concern that dominates his entire body of work. Even the picture frame seems to imprison the nude and the elements depicted, enhancing feelings ranging from the serene to uneasiness. Some of the images are physiologically unnerving.

Putut works with all kinds of digital imaging software. By exploring, exploiting, and experimenting with digitally created images, he is showing us how image making technology can help us to radically change our way of looking, and, thus, enhance our understanding of the world. His artworks reflect an intensive interrogation into our contemporary culture which is increasingly being governed by commercially produced images. Putut does not want to simply copy the work of a machine, but, he wants to illustrate the problems of converting a digitally produced image into an ‘artwork’. Consequently, in the artworks created for his exhibition, ‘Serene Bodies’, Putut attempts to marry the figurative or narrative contents of photography, with the abstract qualities of painting.

As the works ‘Daylight Fading’, ‘Waiting So Long’ and ‘No In Between’ demonstrate, Putut attempts to depict the ‘alienation’ and ‘self control’ of the modern human being in a contemporary society. Putut thinks that “the human body is a space for testing our behaviour and recognizing ourselves, even our own sense of belonging to our own body”. Within these works, Putut apparently wishes to erase all the narrative associations which usually can emerge from a photographic image, and, instead, combine this ‘narration’ into a simplified unity of body language, as the subject matter. Putut is exploring a unified image of the human body to stimulate the viewers own sensations and our own unexpected perceptions. However, as the works ‘Groan’ and ‘Waiting Angel’ further demonstrate, Putut is also interested in capturing the character and expressions of the abstracted moment. By utilizing painting techniques such as cropping, placement, color, shape and form, then, by further applying coats of thin acrylic washes and sharp pencil markings to his artworks, Putut succeeds in creating images that do not represent a ‘natural’ object, but, rather express an exploration of a whole new sensual dimension.

Artist’s statement (Bahasa Indonesia)

Belajar tentang kesadaran dan belajar dari kebajikan adalah belajar dengan mengalami sendiri secara langsung dan bukan karena percaya berdasarkan mitos atau pendapat yang diyakini orang lain. Menguji pengalaman diri sendiri baik yang bersifat vertikal ataupun horizontal. Yang mendapatkan pengajaran dari “hidup” ini sendiri maupun yang Ilahiah.

Hal tersebut di atas sangat berpengaruh pada proses berkarya saya, baik contents maupun visual. Tentunya sangat subyektif dan agak tersembunyi. Dan ini adalah pilihan saya dalam berkesenian, dan merupakan konsekuensi logis yang saya hadapi. Tapi berkesenian seperti ini membuat saya bahagia, karena saya punya keyakinan bahwa apa yang saya ceritakan melalui karya saya tetap ada orang-orang yang dapat menangkap atau menerima “tanda” yang saya sampaikan. Ibarat seseorang yang pernah mencicipi atau makan buah apel, tentunya dia dapat dengan mudah menceritakan bagaimana rasa, warna dan kondisi buah apel kepada orang yang punya pengalaman mencicipi atau makan buah tersebut.

Wahyu Srikaryadi

Wahyu Srikaryadi

Wahyu Srikaryadi is an established visual art artist from West-Java, Indonesia. Although he mainly makes paintings, he now also creates some installations and occasionally also sculptures. Starting his art career as an apprentice of Barli Kartasasmita (1982-1989), one of the modern painting masters of Indonesia, he later works together with Ida Bagus Suadjana and I Gusti Matre (1994-1995). While the former masters influenced his early expressionist style, he grows gradually more interested in depicting details sharply, with clear lines and high contrasts. Rather than realist artist, he also set his subjects in dreamy overly romantic landscape or surroundings. While his paintings of Javanese Hindu and Buddhist temples are proven to be popular, his nude paintings earn a selective collectors group.

Born:
Bandung, August 8, 1968

Education:

Heri Kris

Heri Kris

Heri Kris studied at FSRD ISI Yogyakarta in 1986. He is regarded one of the important contemporary artists in Indonesia. His first solo exhibition outside Indonesia was in Germany in 1994. Heri Kris participated in several group exhibitions such not only in Indonesia but also in Denmark and The Netherlands (by Gallery Lukisan Amsterdam). 
Although his neo-expressionistic boldly coloured works show influences by the (outsider) artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, they are not necessarily political. The works focus mainly on the visual effects. Unlike the artist Heri Kris himself who is a fierce advocate of individual freedom. 
Nowadays Heri Kris works mainly on canvas and is experimenting with sculpture.

Ronald Apriyan

Ronald Apriyan

Ronald Apriyan has long been active in the art world and is himself a talented artist. Although his style gradually changes during his lifetime as an artist, his works of art bare witness of his relentless and continuous pursue of expressing (his longing of) the idealistic life in the ever changing surroundings around his home in Yogyakarta. The development and progress have not only changed the landscape of the island rapidly, but also mean a permanent change of the quality of life. The change does not necessary mean worse life condition, but since villages, rice fields and green forests become concrete buildings and houses, people are struggling to find the balance financially as well socially in the tinier free space.

The abrupt change of his art recently has not gone unnoticed and he gains much appreciation in the art world in not only Indonesia but also abroad, with the latest successes in Singapore and Hong Kong. Although it definitely marks the new era in his works of art, at the very essence the paintings reflect the artist’s true himself.

Afdhal

Afdhal

Afdhal experiments with non-traditional combinations of materials – sponge, silicon caulk sealant, paint and electricity cables. Many times he also uses waste materials in his artworks. Living in Yogyakarta with his young family, not far from the ever active volcano Mount Merapi, Afdhal is much concerned with the environment, especially with the relation of human to the nature. It is a delicate balance that easily tips to other side of the scale.

Afdhal makes installations, paintings and sculptures to depict this vulnerability and insignificance of human. He creates figurative sculptures without faces postured as if deep in thought. His larger paintings many times depict large animals in a surreal environment, surrounded by mysterious mathematical objects. There are fine lines leading to celestial bodies or simply spanning across the canvas. The animal figures while undoubtedly are symbols of strength, are set against tiny human figures or manly created objects. One could wonder who is more vulnerable; Nature of Human…

His art gains more recognition not only in Indonesia but also outside the country (Singapore, The Netherlands, Belgium). Afdhal recently also makes small works in wooden frames or plexi glass boxes – again using many artificial materials, as if to stress the artificiality of current human existence.

Born:
29 March, 1981 in Dumai, Riau Province, Sumatra, Indonesia

Education:
Indonesian Fine Arts Institute (ISI), Yogyakarta, Indonesia

S.E. Dewantoro

S.E. Dewantoro

S.E. (Gepeng) Dewantoro’s bizarre drawings and artworks explore and question the relationship of man (human) with his surroundings. A complicated strings of web and thoughts about existence, politics, religion. His depictions of bare flesh and human bodies are intense and some challenge the tough Indonesian censorship.

Though he explores different media and materials, working on paper has his preference. He draws directly and almost instantaneously on the paper, connecting the lines and figures he has meticulously imagined in his head.

Next to a fine-art artist, Gepeng Dewantoro is also a performance and theatre artist in Bandung, Indonesia.

Born:
31 December 1972, Solo, Indonesia

Education:
Seni Rupa at The Universitas Negeri Sebelas Maret (UNS)
