Hidden Horizon

Oil on Canvas
120 x 150cm


In this painting titled "Hidden Horizon" by Indonesian artist S. dwi Stya Acong, the unknown figure repetitively haunting the artist's anxious surrealistic landscapes is standing up on a bark in an agitated sea. He seems to be staring the surrealistic, otherworldly prismatic shapes levitating, breaking the reality of the landscape and bringing abstract to the physical elements of the composition. From the position of the man, at a stand still in an agitated sea, the evidence that two different worlds are confronted transcends the painting: elements are detached from one another. The colors suggest dreams and contemplation: a range of blue evolves from the sky to the sea. The prismatic shapes, crystallizing in the middle of the painting, bring light to the sky, suggesting the plausibility of being an aster from another realm, neither sun nor moon.

  • +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
