About the artwork
Gunawan expresses the delicate nature of the human condition in this figurative sculpture. The supple curves and inherent softness of the human form are exaggerated in his work through his signature style of rounded bodies. The figure's back is arched in an impressive feat of flexibility, baring its nude form to create a balanced composition almost cyclical in nature, accentuating the expressive ability of the human body to move, change and evolve.
About the artist
Adi was born in Yogyakarta in 1974, Indonesia and received his education at Institut Seni Indonesia, Yogyakarta. In his symbolic sculptures, Adi invokes euphoria and the significance of animals in his work due to his cultural background of growing up in an agrarian society. He uses his cultural positioning as a tool to visualize motions, gestures, characters and expressions of various subjects that he sculpts. He then conveys constructed meaning which, in and through his forms, figures and compositions, puts forth the issue of a mystical relationship between animals and humans. Adi’s highest accolade thus far was representing Indonesia at the Beijing Olympics 2008 Fine Arts Exhibition, where he was bestowed the further honor of an Olympic Torch Award. His sculpture toured Hong Kong, the United States, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland and many other countries.
