Artist Statement

As an Indonesian artist based in Singapore, my art practice revolves around the culture, urban legends, and socio-political situation around the South-East Asia region. Keeping and remembering my Indonesian roots, I am passionate about research work about modern Indonesian History and taking that as a starting point for my works. My artworks are chaotic in nature with duality point-of-views involved and always try to push the 2-Dimensional mediums and because of that, I am subsequently branching out my works into installation and mixed media. Working with organic materials primarily turmeric to activate different senses of the audience, hoping to bring in a visceral sensation to the audience's mind when experiencing the piece.
