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)

Edith Bons

Edith Bons

Edith Bons was born in Indonesia, in the city of Merauke, West-Papua (Irian Jaya). However she grew up in The Netherlands. Graduated from the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten en Vormgeving Minerva, Groningen, The Netherlands, and is active as visual artist since 1985.

In her art, Edith Bons deliberately seeks to express her bicultural roots and living environment, the so-called Indische Identiteit, or Dutch-Indies (read Indonesian) identity. The Poleng [1] motif, occurs many times in her art, is a dualistic symbol of many contrasts: black and white, good and bad, East and West etc. It is striking that poleng in Balinese culture is a symbol of balance of the universe.

Characteristic of Edith Bons’ art is also her use of many elements from traditional Indonesian artefacts, and organic materials such as palm and banana leaves, reed, rattan, wood, but more importantly rice seeds. As the main staple of many people of the East, rice has important meanings to which many symbolisms are assigned. Edith Bons creates several art installations consisting of rice as their main material or subject.

[1] Poleng is a trademark black-and-white checkerboard woven fabric wrapped around objects considered sacred in Bali. A symbol of balance of the universe, the cloth will be put around as banners or tucked in and around statues or rocks, or draped over objects, in which the Hindu Balinese people believe a spirit is living, such as trees, poles, house shrines, etc.

Born 1952 in Merauke, Indonesia.

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.

Wessendorp appears from time to time to have the need to break through his silent contemplation. The frame around the canvas no longer restrains his ideas, thoughts and creativity within and upon its fabric, it rather now becomes part of the artwork. In some, it has resulted in an autonomous entity with its own shape, materials and meaning.

His 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.

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!"

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)

Syahbandi Samat

Syahbandi Samat

Drawing from personal experience and observation, the stupefying technical skills of young artist Muhammad Syahbandi Samat, using primarily ball-point pens, has been gaining wide attention from the Malaysian art scene in recent years, particularly since winning the 2011 cycle of the Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (MEAA), and more recently, the Young Guns Award 2016.

Syahbandi Samat started drawing since the age of four, but he never thought that he would one day make art for a living. As he simply put it, he just liked to draw. It was only when he was commissioned by a local daily to draw seven portraits of children, and got paid a good sum afterwards that he realised he could make money out of this talent.

His keen interest in art began while still in secondary school, experimenting with various mediums before settling on using the ballpoint pen, catalysed by his discovery of artworks by Spanish artist and poet Juan Fransisco Casas. His earlier works were portrayals of myths and fairy tales, through the artist’s own interpretive lens, at times twisted but in a humorous sense. Since then his artistic creations have become more introspective, projecting his concerns and fears into surrealistic viewscapes that are often intriguing at first glance.

Syahbandi takes the ballpoint pen well beyond the implement’s typical role as a writing instrument, fuelled by his determination and hard work, continuously improving his skills as a visual artist, and is definitely a talent to watch in the coming years.

Indra Dodi

Indra Dodi

Indra Dodi makes an effort to simulate childlike drawings and joyous spontaneity on his usually large canvases with expressive, art brut, naïve style but with a refined manner. The layered colours, the notion of composition and structures, together with the detailed figures which appear to have their own characters, reveal the careful thought behind his paintings.

A graduate of the prestigious Indonesian art college in Yogyakarta, ISI (Indonesian Institute of the Arts), and a pupil of Yunizar, his works have been exhibited abroad, as far as The Netherlands and Germany. With already some solo and group exhibitions in Asia, in South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, The Philippines and of course Indonesia, Indra Dodi is one of the most successful Indonesian contemporary artists.

The smaller works are specially made for outside Indonesia and framed in beautiful (teak) wooden frame.

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”.

Eddie Hara

Eddie Hara

EddiE haRa is one of the few among the Indonesian contemporary artists, who has succeeded in finding a new visualisation vocabulary.

His colourful, layered works are a clash between children's innocence and raw street life, charaterised by the urban murals quality. A mixture of fresh wildness of children's mischievous fantasies and the more generic raw art in his works, eventually emerging to a new painting genre.

Typical of his works are the recurrent figures of jellyfishes, squids, rabbits, the hat-wearing shoes/boots, and human skulls that are scattered flying and tumbling all over his canvas. Their contour lines and colours connect and cross the confined borders. The painting seems thus to be just a tiny fraction, a mere frame in this endless continuity. Eddie Hara's works keep dealing with various themes and sub-culture mindset: from environment deterioration through the absurdity of contemporary people's life.

Soni Irawan

Soni Irawan

As an artist with a formal art education and as a musician, (he was one of the founders of Yogyakarta experimental band Seek Six Sick), Soni Irawan has different approach to create his artworks.

His art is greatly influenced by the spirit and energy of rock music, but also his printmaking background, especially in the creation of woodcut prints. His paintings on canvas or wood pieces are filled with spontaneous brush strokes and have sketchy street-art appearance. The subject matters are however largely personal, revolve around his family, his social environment and an effort to capture the spirit of human survival in everyday life.

Rather than painting a depth impression of gradual colour changes or shadows, he uses main and unmixed colours for his objects, that are laid over each other in a free composition. The roughness of the lines of these subjects and forms are inherent to his expressive primitivism woodcut prints. Unlike the relatively more free handpainting, and inherent to the process of the making of woodcut prints, the artist needs not only to think about the image but also how to build up the image using the different wood carved blocks for different colouring etc to achieve the images as an artwork entity.

Nguyen Dinh Vu

Nguyen Dinh Vu

Vietnamese painting is mainly a twentieth century phenomenon. In contrast to other Asian countries, Vietnamese artists in the feudal period did not practise the art of painting, but devoted themselves to sculpture and the decoration of temples and pagodas. At the end of the nineteenth century, the French introduced the technique of oil-painting to Vietnam and in 1925 they established the ‘Ecole des Beaux-Art l’Indochine’ in Hanoi. This marks the beginnings of a professional class of painters, who painted ‘after nature’ in a realistic and impressionistic style.

After the war against France, the separation of North and South Vietnam in 1954, followed by the war between the North and the South, the artists followed completely different courses. The artists from the North (under influence of the Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China) turned in the direction of the social-realistic stream, while the southern artists embraced western trends, influenced by the presence of the Americans. Nevertheless, neither the influences was decisive in the development of Vietnamese Modern Art.

Despite the "Doi Moi", Vietnam’s Perestroika – which allowed contemporary Vietnamese artists more freedom, was introduced in 1986, most of the artists did not direct their attention to the (western) preoccupation with changing of the frontiers of Vietnamese art. Combining traditional methods on modern materials like lacquer on wood, using (traditional) motifs and techniques, the younger generation of Vietnamese artists have gone throught a revival of the use of traditional elements in stead, involving different forms of arts, such as installation, performance and video art.

Nguyen Dinh Vu combines materials as metaphor for the layers of history. Old newspaper often forms a second base on his canvas. The figures in blue and white have resemblance with the antique Chinese porcelain. His famous metaphoric man in suits with golden box head surrounded by Chinese/Vietnamese motifs slowly make room for more impasto* abstract works.

In fine art, the Italian word 'Impasto' (dough or paste) denotes a painting technique in which undiluted paint is applied so thickly (like toothpaste) onto the canvas or panel (often with a palette knife) that it stands out from the surface.
