(8/28/2011)

Contemporary Artist Suliyat Bumar was born in Malang, East Java in 1970.

Prolific and boldly expressive, he has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions dating from the mid-1990s. Internationally his work has been shown in Hong Kong, Italy. Switzerland, Sweden and Germany.

Adi Bachmann, the owner and curator of Adi’s Gallery in Ubud, Bali caught up with Suliyat Bumar for a free-ranging interview on the eve of his month-long exhibition September 3-28, 2011.

The Interview: Suliyat Bumar

Adi Bachmann: Looking through your body of work, it shows how productive you are. You are a very busy painter. Why is this so?

Suliyat Bumar: "It is a commitment. Everything should be done with responsibility. Becau se it is not always easy to get something - it is not like turning your palm."

Adi Bachmann: What calls you every morning and gets you out of bed?

Suliyat Bumar: "I am not really sure. But every time I open my eyes, I just want to lead my life better than before."

Adi Bachmann: What would do if you didn’t paint?

Suliyat Bumar: (laughing) "Painting is a part of my life. So, if I don’t paint, I will lose something in my life."

Adi Bachmann: Let’s try some word association. What do the following terms mean to you?

Adi Bachmann: Ambition?

Suliyat Bumar: "It is very important to improve a career, but I don’t give a priority to ambition in my life."

Adi Bachmann: Art Business?

Suliyat Bumar: "Because I earn a living by selling my paintings, I certainly have to learn about it and I think it is very useful for the continuation of the process of creation."

Adi Bachmann: Creativity?

Suliyat Bumar: "It is absolutely needed by painters in order to make fine artwork"

Adi Bachmann: Facts?

Suliyat Bumar: "Enjoy whatever you have in your life and try to be better."

Adi Bachmann: Fantasy?

Suliyat Bumar: "The dreamer is the successful one."

Adi Bachmann: Feelings?

Suliyat Bumar: "Feelings and sensitivity should be understood considering them logically, this is most important."

Adi Bachmann: Indonesia?

Suliyat Bumar:  "I am very proud of Indonesia and love her in her weaknesses and strengths because this country gives me the freedom to be a painter."

Adi Bachmann: Inspiration?

Suliyat Bumar:  "Be wide open to receive everything internally as well as externally."

Adi Bachmann: Intuition?

Suliyat Bumar: "It is a point of view needed to make a decision on the next step."

Adi Bachmann: Irony?

Suliyat Bumar: "It is a hidden target."

Adi Bachmann: Politics?

Suliyat Bumar: "Reasoning is important in this life."

Adi Bachmann: Your paintings are very often strong in colors and brush strokes. What is it you want to express?

Suliyat Bumar: "My honesty and my ignorance."

Adi Bachmann: Almost from the beginning, you use numbers and letters in your paintings. Why do you do this?

Suliyat Bumar: "Letters, alphabet, numbers, words and sentences are objects no different from ‘things,’ so it’s not exaggerated if I try to explore things visually through my ignorance and place the letters just the way they are and they do not represent anything."

Adi Bachmann: Can you explain the meaning of  “Don’t trust what you see” – the title of your current exhibition?

Suliyat Bumar: "Don’t trust what you see. This sentence is more than just an offer for introspection - to face every problem in our lives. We cannot judge something just by seeing it because our eyesight is limited. It takes deeper investigation in order to truly understand."
