Concept

Bagi saya kualitas sebuah karya tidak dapat ditentukan dari medium maupun materialnya. Berkarya dengan media apapun adalah tantangan, karena dituntut untuk dapat mengolahnya menjadi sebuah karya yang mampu mewakili ide-ide dan menampung ekspresi. Maka dari itu saya menghadirkan karya lukis dan batik yang dikemas menjadi satu bagian karya. Saya berharap masyarakat umum mampu melihat secara langsung serta mengubah cara pandangnya, bahwa batik dan lukis dapat berada di posisi yang sama pada sebuah pameran seni rupa. Di samping itu, dalam pandangan saya, semangat adalah kekuatan utama dalam penciptaan sebuah karya.

 

For me the quality of a piece of art is not determined by its medium or material. Whatever medium that the artist uses is a challenge in itself, it always demands the artist to use it as a way to represent their ideas and to contain their expression. Therefore, I present a painting and a batik as an integral part of my piece. I hope public can see it themselves and change their point of view, batik and painting hold the same position in the exhibition of fine art. Besides, in my view, spirit is the main power in creating a piece of art.
