Di seri karya ini, saya berusaha mempelajari karya-karya seniman yang saya gemari. Layaknya tindakan apropriasi, dengan cara elaborasi dan membuat ulang karya-karya tersebut, saya merasa sedikit banyak dapat masuk ke dalam “pandangan” mereka. Meskipun pada awalnya saya tidak terbayang akan seperti apa rasa dan juga hasilnya, namun yang paling penting menurut saya adalah di prosesnya, saya banyak mendapati inspirasi dan hal- hal baik lainnya, termasuk pengalaman estetik dan artistik “baru” yang memicu saya untuk terus mencipta dan belajar.

 

In this series, I try to study the works of artists that I enjoy. Like any act of appropriation, by elaborating and re-making of those works, I feel like, more or less, I can get into their "point of view". Although in the beginning, I couldn't imagine what it'd feel like—and also the result, but the most important thing for me is the process, I can get inspiration and other good things, including "new" aesthetic and artistic experience which drive me to keep on creating and learning.
