My Son and I

An Exhibition of Art by Sasya Tranggono and Nicholas Hilman December 14, 2007 – March 7, 2007 at Jenggala Gallery.


(3/1/2008)



Sasya Tranggono

Sasya Tranggono is an eminent name among Indonesia's watercolor artists. Describe by many as "feminine" because of her use of soft color, flowers and titles. Born into a Javanese family of entrepreneurs and educated in the West, Sasya decided to embark on a mission to express herself and her cultural identity via her artwork. To Sasya, flowers are simple objects that can be presented beyond themselves.

As art critic Jean Couteau says of her: "Sasya wraps the flowers in a magical aura of color that locates them beyond the 'real'. The flowers belong to the "unreality" of longing – the longing for an Indonesian identity."

Sasya studied industrial engineering at Smith College in Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York (BSC: 1987); She is also a graduate in business administration from the Rotterdam School of Management in Erasmus University, The Netherlands (MBA: 1991). Sasya’s art skills debut at the Vrije Academie Rotterdam, The Netherlands (1995). She also belongs to the Werve Shell Art Club in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Nicholas Hilman

Nicholas Hilman was born in 1994 in The Hague. Nicholas started to paint at the age of 2.5 years, learning his painting lessons from his mother Sasya Tranggono. Many of his works are inspired by his daily life as a child growing up in a big city. His ideas are caught from people he meets, media he is exposed to and trips he has taken. From a scene of Godfather movie to the busy city of Jakarta, as well as his schoolmates - all are interesting sources of inspirations for his paintings on canvas as well as ceramics. His fondness of cooking and food are also reflected on his ceramic artworks as well as paintings. Seemingly unconcerned with style and techniques, Nicholas plays more freely with his theme. Such unconstrained concept makes for a wonderful variation of thematic artworks.

Using a brilliant choice of bright colors, Nicholas plays with all that interests him, landscape, objects and figures. It might be too early to mention his style but looking at the colors and figures, such as in Figh-Ting, people might suppose he has seen the artworks of Austrian artist Hunderstwasser, New York's Jean-Michel Basquiat and Indonesian painter Eddy Hara. In his painting titled Fake Money, for example, he points out consumerism culture by illustrating credit card as a tool for buying clothes, shoes, and a cemetery lot. On his ceramic pieces, the odd nature of raw glazed ceramics that absorb color instantly do not make him awkward in manifesting his ideas.

In "My Son and I", Nicholas wishes to introduce his works to a Bali audience.
