Artist Statement

Photography has played an important role in my recent paintings. I am particularly interested in the way that the documentary qualities of photography can evoke narratives through memory and imagination. The painting #Heri’s Studio#Jogja is comprised of a couple of figures that are a combination of moulds for making sculptures and parts of sculptures surrounded by building materials and detritus. This temporary arrangement was located in an enclosed yard behind Heri Dono’s studio buildings in Jogjakarta.
