About the artwork
With this painting, Stevan Buana demonstrates how he masterfully creates layers of conceptual notions that coalesce with each other and are incorporated into the technical process of a painting. Visions are depicted with specific techniques and this method in itself shows that Buana is totally devoted to the process of creating contemporary artwork. The space transforms into vivid forms, which also morph within a multilayered context.
About the artist
Stefan Buana is a rising star amongst Indonesia's emerging artists, marking his way with fascinating paintings and exquisite sculptures that challenge and amuse his collectors and critics. Stefan is known for his constant experimentation with various styles and media and his creation of unique art pieces using non-traditional materials such as torched metal and rough craquelure.
In recent years, Stefan's approach has shifted from abstraction with bold strokes, earthly colors and unusual figures to works that have a more conceptual content that represent his creative ideas and values. Tactile and pleasing to the eye, the paintings of Stefan Buana are deceptively benign. But don't be lulled by the pastel shades and fine lines as "Stefan is making strong social and political statements" says Michael Vatikiotis - former editor of the Far Eastern Economic Review, in his review for Stefan's solo exhibition at Galeri Nasional, Jakarta in 2008.
