About the artwork

CSG - 136 ( JZ ) - Dedy Sufriadi utilises the unusual material of silicone on canvas, that creates a striking and fascinating texture. The work is rendered completely in white, conveying notions of purity, that link to the beginning of life when one is totally innocent and pure. Despite using the same material throughout, it is Dedy’s skilful placement and composition that imbues the work with life, creating variations of movement and intensity in different parts of the canvas, most notably with the climax appearing to be in the center of the work. Dedy’s style surprises and destabilizes, creating a strong visual impact through its dazzling blend of emotion and technique.

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.
