(8/22/2009)

Like his deliciously nervous paintings dominated by agitated lines and bright colors, the career of the central Javanese artist Ipong Purnama Sidhi has been both long and fluid. Painter, graphic artist, illustrator, curator and book designer - he began his varied career as a student at Yogyakarta's prestigious art academy. Since 1975, he has exhibited both in Indonesia and abroad, winning national and international praise, including a work stint in Sweden as a graphic artist at Stockholm's Royal University.

The works displayed in his current exhibition of works on canvas are dominated by the human figure and profile, each portraying a specific emotional state. Interaction with others and symbolic peripheral images are used to create virtual allegories. As in reality, these are often muddled. Ostensibly "Mother and Child Reunion 3" is a joyous picture of a baby girl and her mother, yet the imposing rigidity of the mom's bouffant hairdo and the generic doll-like child in a pink polka dot dress give pause for thought. Other figures are humorously estranged, such as the frizzy-haired man in an agitated state seen in "Travel to Hyper-Reality," a work dedicated to a songwriter.

Ipong's technique is strongly influenced by graphic art sensibilities with extensive use of black outlines over bright colors. As drawn, the lines are not solid but imbued with nervous energy that causes the image to vibrate. Notably his subjects prefer stripes and polka dots.

A developed artist, Ipong has also played an important role as a curator at Bentara Budaya, one of the most important exhibition spaces in Yogyakarta's bustling art scene.
