Raymond Boekelder

Raymond Boekelder (1962) studied at the AKI, Enschede and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. His oeuvre has been built on stylised realistic paintings. He is however continuously trying to find the insightful relation between the artificial world of objects and human. Human figures as object with simplified body parts, and with knots connected by lines, are part of his visual language.

Born:
1962, Groenlo, The Netherlands

NEDERLANDS

Raymond Boekelder studeerde aan de kunstacademie AKI in Enschede en aan de Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten te Amsterdam. Boekelder heeft inmiddels een oeuvre opgebouwd van realistische verstilde kunst waar vorm en inhoud dichtbij elkaar liggen. Ondanks de eerdere successen gunt hij zichzelf ruimte voor het experimentele. Terugkerend thema in zijn werk is communicatie, die telkens een andere gedaante krijgt. Boekelder zoekt voortdurend naar inzichten tussen de kunstmatige werelden van object en mens. Maar ook de mens als object. Diens vereenvoudigde lichaamsdelen, verbonden door lijnen zijn onderdeel van een eigen beeldtaal. Het zijn gewortelde mensen waaruit plantaardige organen spruiten die laten zien hoe de aarde en de mens verbonden kunnen zijn.

Jan Wessendorp

Jan Wessendorp

Johannes George (Jan) Wessendorp, born in 1940 in Surabaya (Indonesia), started at the MTS voor de Fotografie en Fototechniek, The Hague before pursuing his artistic desire and education at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten, The Haque, specialising in painting, drawing and design technique. He became lecturer in Drawing, Colour and Form Technique at the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten St. Joost, Breda and was one of the apprentices of Paul Citroen, Rein Draijer, and Hugo Liebe.

Primarily a painter, Jan Wessendorp is a versatile artist whose works range from drawing and graphic to plastic arts (sculpture). Wessendorp creates figures and characters that show openness, even vulnerability, yet they are never defenceless let alone aggressive. They manifest themselves by their unusual look and posture. Despite their subdued emotions, one can sense the fear, compassion, happiness, loneliness and even some love there.

From time to time the frame around the canvas no longer becomes boundaries of the image, it rather becomes integral part of the artwork. While in some, it transforms to an autonomous entity with its own shape, materials and meaning.

Wessendorp’s works have been collected by a number of museums and national organisations across The Netherlands and Belgium. His graphic piece paired with poetry by Albert Hagenaars is now in the collection of Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven. In collaboration with Auke van der Heide, he created the striking  sculptural landscape object, titled “De Emmer van Toen is de Buis van Nu”, a concrete tower adorned with zinc buckets, in the vicinity of the utilitarian waste water treatment plant.

Born:
1940, Surabaya, Indonesia

Education:

Artist’s Statement (freely translated)

“Art is embedded in nature and they who can extract it, have it.” (Albrecht Dürer)

This quote by Albrecht Dürer is the guideline in my work and life. It not only relates to nature, which becomes visible around us as an object world, but also, as far as we are nature ourselves, to our physical and intelligent existence. Nature makes herself known in us as our own special nature and specific talent. This quality determines the kind of attention for that object world, through which a world of ideas and feelings opens up. The artist’s struggle is to arrive at a distinct form of experience that is then expressed in a specific painterly ability. The development of vision, originality and expression is determined by an uninterrupted self-education and training, in all aspects of the artist’s life. In doing so, all lower impulses become subservient to the higher and are absorbed! 

“Art is hidden in nature” 

Artistic image is not so much supported by external characteristics, but even more by substantive implications, which are the result of that growing consciousness. The possibility to move and communicate in art: to set the viewer inwardly in motion and thus to encourage a self-experience, does not lie in the passionate desire of the maker to communicate himself, to influence others, or in the lust of design. This possibility lies in the artist’s ability to create from the source of life that he has been able to tap into and to which he has been able to give an authentic visual form! 

“Whoever can extract it, have it!”

Arwin Hidayat

Arwin Hidayat

Arwin Hidayat combines primitive and contemporary motifs for his works on paper and in his paintings, and also by folk art inspired refined unique batik pieces. Although many of his works are inspired by his personal experiences and thoughts, his works of art can be seen as a subtle manner to pose questions about socio-economic and moral situation in Indonesia.

Arwin Hidayat loves the medium batik. It is traditionally a method to decorate cloth with motifs, pattern or designs using colour dyes and wax. It requires quite an elaborate manner of painting (writing) by hand, unlike the modern printed textile production for the mass. Although the method can be found in many places in (South-East) Asia, in Java especially this method of cloth decorating has found its high refinement, where every motive has its own meanings, and whom are allowed to use depending on the gender and even ranks of social and heritage. The traces of these batik paintings can be found in his works on paper.

Arwin Hidayat’s artworks have been selected several times for ArtJog, the annual & prestigious contemporary art exhibition in Yogyakarta.

Born:
12 April, 1983 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Prihatmoko Moki

Prihatmoko Moki

Prihatmoko Moki is a print & silk-screen artist and one of the founders of the Krack! Studio (2012), a studio and gallery focusing on printmaking in Yogyakarta. Other founders are Rudi Hermawan, Sukma Smitha and Australian artist Malcolm Smith. In the same year he was also one of the organisers of LELAGU, an annual art event combining acoustic music and responses with live drawing in Kedai Kebun Gallery, Yogyakarta.

Although he does make solitary prints, drawings, theatre performance and murals, most of his works are series of comic strip silk-screen prints of certain situations. A satirical story telling not always necessarily as criticism but to shine light to the complexity of the matters.

In his works, Moki refers to historical events and myths to approach the issues. He depicts distinctive figures identified from footmen, soldiers to courtiers of the Jogja Kraton (the sultan’s palace) and people wearing everyday’s clothes looking like peasants, placed in a contemporary scene mixed with traditional or symbolic attributes from the glorious past. The whole scene is a metaphor of the hierarchical and sometimes strained relationship between the ruler(s) or people in power and the regular people.

Moki has participated in numerous group national and international exhibitions. He has also been an long and active member of multidisciplinary PUNKASILA art project, initiated by Danius Kesminas, which has performed in Indonesia, Australia, Lithuania and Cuba.

Born:
1982

Education:
Printmaking at the Indonesian Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta (Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta, ISI Yogyakarta)

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.

Maryanto

Maryanto

With his activist art, Maryanto has gained international recognition, a number of international art collaboration projects and exhibitions in important art events. His works come into existence from his deep desire to expose the negative ecological damage human brings into the nature and to the living environment.

Maryanto creates evocative, black and white paintings, drawings, and installations that undermine the romantic language of traditional landscape painting to examine socio-political structures in the physical spaces that he depicts. Through fable-like and theatrical settings, these landscapes are subjected to the whims of colonisers and capitalists through technological development, industrialisation, pollution of the land and exploitation of its natural resources. (Source: Yeo Workshop, Singapore)

Maryanto makes artworks that serve as a form of storytelling with the impression of theatrical stage or landscape setting. The work as stories explores and transfers knowledge through historical research, myths and stories combined with the artist’s own artistic imagination and constructed forms. The results are dramatic and romantic black and white installations made of paintings, etchings, rich charcoal drawings that evoke stories and environments. The subject of his ongoing project that commenced several years ago has to do with his curiosity on resources and its effect on a country and politics. In his daily observations of life in Indonesia, combined with his formal training in the arts at the Institute of the Art, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and his subsequent residencies in the Netherlands at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and the Esculea de Orient programme at Casa Asia Barcelona, Spain, as well as his gallery solo shows, he is able to compare and explore the history of colonialism and its role in the allocation of resources. He sees “resource” as a pandora’s box; that a country with big resources could cause tension and conflict between the systems that navigates and governs economics and daily life of the people.

Maryanto recently exhibited at the “Discoveries” section of Art Basel Hong Kong 2016, the Setouchi Triennale 2016, Bazaar Art Jakarta 2016, and Art Stage Singapore 2017. He also participated at the Yogyakarta Biennale 2015 “Hacking Conflict, Indonesia meets Nigeria”, creating a large entrance piece, and the Jakarta Biennale 2015 “Neither Forward Nor Back” as curated by Charles Esche with an installation work “Temah Ruah di Wonocolo”.

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan is one of the most important contemporary artists of Indonesia. He is an artist who works with a variety of media. Agung Kurniawan has developed his artistic work within the field of concrete socio-cultural activism; he believes an artist has more and larger social responsibilities than simply producing artistic work. His traditional medium is drawing, but lately he works actively with performance art and videography. Although he works with performance art, he refuses to be called as a performer, and preferred to call himself as the director of the crowds in stead. Both as a studio artist and an art activist, he takes up clear positions and his approach often leads him either down to street level or to intervening in bureaucratic structures.

Agung Kurniawan’s work is reputed to be fairly “coarse” due to themes of violence, controversial politics and taboo subjects. The artist started out with book illustrations, drawings and comics, which offered a harsh, often satirical critique of Indonesian society at that time. With his drawing Happy Victim (1996), depicting people hanging upside down while laughing cheerfully, he won a 1996 Philip Morris Art Award and gained international recognition.

His famous trellis works series started in 2006. The series was inspired by an old family photo album from 1974, consisting of a photo diary of the artist’s mother during the last days of her dying father. Agung tried to recreate the personal as well collective memories by working the panels as a kind of comic book where the trellises are the contours of the figures and the shadows cast the blurred memory.

Agung Kurniawan co-founded “Indonesian Visual Art Archive” (IVAA) and co-owner of Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) in Yogyakarta. His works are to be found worldwide mostly in museums e.g. Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Singapore Art Museum, as well as in private collection. His recent works include his performance in The Netherlands “Remember Day Parade and after”, during the so-called transHISTORY (Arnhem June 2016) and his video art during the Europalia Festival 2017 (Paleis voor Schone Kunsten / BOZAR / Centre for Fine Art Brussels, Belgium).

Artist’s Statement 2015 (in Bahasa Indonesia, freely translated)

– Tidak ada yang lebih berharga dari seni, kalau ada itupun pasti palsu (Nothing is more truthful than art, if there is any, then it is false)
– Cinta itu sementara, kesepian itu abadi (Love is temporary, Loneliness is forever)
– Kemiskinan adalah ibu tiri seni kontemporer (Poverty is the stepmother of contemporary art)

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa’s (or shortly Purwa) concept of art works is his continuous search of freedom. His paintings speak about human bodies in a true search and longing for freedom, realising that human existence or ones’ due rights was given to them since birth.

Although the subjects in the paintings sometime take different shape or posture, they are in fact an expression of himself. For this reason the figures are embodiments of the artist himself. His works are expression of this quest to freedom and a reflection of the suffering of this urge to realise his dream.

Wearing mask or face painted to hide agony, jumping high or almost disappear to the side while running, the figures move till the edge of the canvas (or paper) as if they are looking to break out of the frame, looking for freedom outside their confined edges. Inspired by the traditional Balinese dance, the figures appear to dance with vigorous movements, expressing anger and frustration. Sometime those figures stand precariously close to the edge of an imaginary cliff with unknown depth.

The figures somehow seem to realise their own physical limitations and destiny if you like and thus reflects a struggle for self-acceptance, perhaps resignation.

Abounding with heightened emotions and rich cultural traditions, Purwa’s stylised figures draw upon the diversity and vibrancy of his background. Graceful composition showing vulnerable strength and light-footed postures bear the weight of mental burden.

Juni Pattimahu Kusumanto

Juni Pattimahu Kusumanto

Juni Pattimahu-Kusumanto (1957) was born in Bandung, Indonesia, and migrated at the age of twelve to the Netherlands, where she attended St. Joost Breda Academy of Arts in 1990-1995. Believing in the nonviolence[1] philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi as the only way to find the harmony among different and often conflicting interests of many people in the world, she herself seeks to find this harmony in her art. The balance but also duality between light and darkness always present in her works.

More recent works put nature more central, showing the artist’ deep concern towards the ecological crises that increasingly confront life on planet earth. In these later works, Juni has chosen the rainforest ecological system as a metaphor of harmony and balancing acts of the different creatures, including humans. These works seem also to tell that there is no rigid divide between the conscious and the unconscious; both make part of one ecological entity.

Working on various media ranging from charcoal to acrylic paint on paper or canvas, she recently uses transparent garment fabric such as tulle, chiffon or organza as media to convey her ideas, with yarn as threading lines and coloured planes. The thin structure of the fabric emphasises the duality of the strength and at the same time the vulnerability of the used materials.

[1] Nonviolence is the personal practice of not causing harm to others under any condition. It may come from the belief that hurting people, animals and/or the environment is unnecessary to achieve an outcome and it may refer to a general philosophy of abstention from violence. It may be based on moral, religious or spiritual principles, but also the reasons for it may be purely strategic or pragmatic. [source: Wikipedia]

In 2016, I participated in the exhibition “Food” held by SciArt at the New York Hall of Science in New York, USA, where I shared a drawing of the Moringa Oleifera tree, also called ‘the miracle tree’. The tree, very rich in vitamins and minerals, grows in arid areas in large parts of Asia and Africa is a useful tree not only in developing countries against malnutrition, but also in the West where essential nutritional values of food products have decreased, due to, among other matters, monocultures and fast breeding species. The tree is highly purposeful because different parts of the tree can be used including as food and for healing of ailments and purifying of polluted water. (Text by Juni P. Kusumanto)
