About the artwork
A contrast to Dedy's usual convoluted style, this piece reflects tranquility and peace through its calm undisturbed expanse of the color blue. The title tells the viewer the state of the artists mind and what inspired the expression, thus implying that the artist was thinking of his mother when he created this. The aura of the image reflect the serenity and comfort the artist finds in the figure of his mother, while the scribblings of his mind reflect a childish state of mind that the artist is reminded of at this memory. Once again, in his signature style, Dedy Sufriadi displays is thoughts and emotions with ease and a distinctive touch.
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.
