S. Dwi Stya Acong invites us through his paintings in a Surrealist world. The viewer is immersed in dreamscapes of light and colors where a man is seen with his back facing front. Is it the dreamer, creator of this unknown land coming straight out from his mind, or a representation of the viewer itself, lost in the artists' inception? In this intense composition, the unknown man repetitively haunting the landscapes challenges the elements. The prismatic shapes, always present like a leitmotiv, contrast with the concrete, palpable colors of the background. The presence of those two symbols suggests the confrontation of different worlds and of different realities: the familiar material realm and the other, multi-universe. Presenting his surrealist paintings, S. dwi Stya Acong reflects on the possibilities of alternative realities, presenting his parallel universe while opening the eyes of the viewer on his ability to choose a reality.

  • +Artist Bio

    S. Dwi Stya Acong was born in 1977 in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. Acong studied Fine Art at the Indonesia Institute of the Art, Yogyakarta. The way in which light is captured in Acong's paintings is reminiscent of the repertoire of the earlier Impressionists. Through his short, unblended brushstrokes, he achieves an effect of intense color vibrations. This makes further apparent the rupture between time and space, which is the recurring theme of his works. The anonymous men always seem out of place within the luxuriant hues of the paintings, yet they also make Acong's compositions particularly haunting and unforgettable. As S.Dwi Stya Acong renders absurd situations with stunning ease, he presents us with a fresh interpretation of Surrealist art. S.Dwi Stya Acong was one of the finalists for the Philip Morris Indonesia Art Award in 2000. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Taiwan. Read More
