About the artwork
A myriad of strokes and uplifting colors, this painting is reminiscent of childish and euphoric thought. Childish figures and scribbles adorn the page with letters and calculations adding to the artist's theme of the beginnings of a child's imagination. The artist believes that calculations and math are part of a child's advent into imagination, thus combining with the colors of the piece to remind us cheerfully and creatively of our humble beginnings of imagination.
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.
