Dipo Andy

Lately Dipo Andy has mostly been working on abstract paintings. In an interview on artspace.id website, he stated that for him creating abstract paintings is similar to a spiritual practice. The attempt to manifest nothingness into existence. Sensing the unsensed. To lay an empty to have it filled. And to know when and where to stop. A painting in his understanding nowadays is an exploration of personal identity. Returning into the self. By achieving the transcendent, a personality would be able to see as well as to understand various perspectives. The painting work consisting of 3 panels titled "Di Antara" (2018), is made of oil paint, acrylic, a collage of fiber mat and sarong on canvas. In the site, Dipo further explained the matters of painting work production today, how the creation theory basis in his works is an attempt to return to the basic principles of painting: lines, colors, field, and space. Dipo Andy builds a transcendental dialogue through the layers of every color, he also created real and pseudo texture with transverse straight lines, a visual impression of graphic print effect. Dipo Andy was born in Seteluk, Sumbawa, West Nusa Tenggara, August 21, 1975. He studied visual arts in Indonesian Institute of the Arts in Yogyakarta (1992-1999). Some of his solo exhibitions are: "Appropriating Marginality," Emmitan CA Gallery, Surabaya (2012). Earlier, "Passion Fashion," Semarang Gallery, Semarang (2008).
