Painting Exhibition by Wisnu Sasongko at Adiís Gallery Ubud, Bali December 3 Ė 31, 2011


(11/27/2011)

I bring an idea of Peaceful Meditation living in diversity through my artistic expression, just like harmonizing visual elements expressively in order to find miraculous transformation.”

- Wisnu Sasongko

Born in Jakarta in1975, Wisnu Sasongko’s adolescent interest in painting led him to the Fine Art Institute of Yogyakarta where he obtained a degree in 2001.

He has exhibited widely in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Born Christian in a predominantly Islamic nation, many of his paintings have undercurrents, expressing conflicts existing within his nation.

Wisnu once said: "I have a vision...God called me to share the spirit of love through art."

That love, however, does not impede Wisnu from addressing harsh realities of life in Indonesia in his paintings. Nor is he shy to deliver stinging cultural and political critiques via his art. Accordingly, his works have sometime drawn criticism from various quarters.

Much of Wisnu’s work is metaphorical in nature. A greenhouse can represent home; a solitary chair, a political position used to improve or miusused to destroy society; a moving bike to depict the courage to move forward; a boat symbolizing  the mystery of life’s journey; a bed to relate relaxation from daily burdens and a red crown to relate  anger and frustration.

"Art is the way of spiritual consciousness which has to be present in esthetic matters. Making art, for me, faithfully, moves into the un-real; it can be played in almost wild artistic imaginations. My concern about artistic matters creates such critical ideas and helps to build up harmony and diversity in cultural processes. So, does my art have metaphor, meditation, religiousness, spirituality or enjoyment to expose?"

-Wisnu Sasongko-
