Solo Exhibition by Dadang Christanto
The well-driven paintings Christanto presents in his opening at Gaya Fusion Art Space seem to look back to influences ranging from Italian arte povera to Indian tantric paintings to Indonesian batik; his stylization is contemporary, intelligent; the paintings speak to each other with textures and transposed symbols stripped of their decorative aspects (e.g., chilly peppers and Indonesian flowers that become flames); and the skilled play of positive and negative space combines with the fragility of his mark-making to evoke a human element that?s beyond borders.
