About the artwork
CSG - 124 ( Citigold-Ting ) Homage #8 is a part of Sufraidi's latest Abstract-Expressionism series, with a focus on bringing across emotions to its viewers with the usage of strong bold colours and thick acrylic strokes layered over each other to create many textures. The textured strokes give life to the faces, creating a sense of dynamism and 3-dimensionality to the painting. The mixture of splatters and strokes of the colours form small face-like details, eliciting a sense of curiosity and intrigue to look out for the different faces in the artwork.
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.
