About the artwork
This striking piece by Dedy Sufriadi creates a captivating visual experience for viewers, igniting their senses through his unique vision. Dedy blends paint with child-like scribbles and symbols in this work, which features a primarily monochromatic colour palette. Curiously, a rope hangs from the canvas, its purpose deliberately ambiguous and left to the viewer’s imagination. Despite the apparent simplicity of colour, Dedy’s application of paint creates a strong sense of movement and dynamism, that furthers the intensity of this symbolic piece, leaving viewers with further thoughts to ponder.
About the artist
Born in Indonesia in 1976, Dedy began his artistic journey
in Jogjakarta in 1995 and began to exhibit his work at the tender age of
twenty. The recognition was inevitable as his radical and forceful works gained
immediate interest, eventually earning him many awards and critical acclaim for
his unique expressive style and abstract execution.
Strong compositions of entangled words and symbols, Dedy Sufriadi’s
paintings are powerful both in terms of visuals and meaning. Through his abstract
paintings, the artist explores the borders between discipline, words and
imagery. Refusing to be bound by a particular discipline, a unique hybrid
artistic language is used by the artist to evolve his subject matter more
freely. Creating images that are worth a thousand words and employing words
that are worth a thousand images, his pieces are striking in their directness
and honesty - leaving a memorable impact on all who view them.
