Artist Statement
 
Usually I always applied a physical structure to my painting
because I believe the structure will explain something about
the surrounding. Thus, that how life sometimes appeared
with two different character and form, so that we have always
face it as possible as we can to accept what we have. Related
to our environment, which are a lot of hard material, rise up
building, exposed structure building, and so on. Wood is no
longer being a main material to build the building today. This
is explain some of visual to our environment, which the
environment in the development era. Therefore we need to have
a kind of transparent thinking inside our self to accept as posibble
as we can inside our enviroment.

The structure exposed with a gesture lines on the canvas was
insipired from that environment.  Aliminium and wood combine
as a diffirent material and character shows the differences what
we have today and adapt with a gesture line as the choas. This
combination of gesture lines, geometric shape and physical
form to find out the transparent among them to achieve the balance
and dynamic of the artwork itself.
