Strong compositions of entangled words and symbols, Dedy Sufriadi’s abstract paintings are powerful both in visuals and in meaning, as he explores the borders between discipline, words and imagery. This work features a largely monochromatic colour palette, yet it retains a fascinating visual quality through the dynamism created by the artist’s energetic scribbles. While they appear indecipherable, their sense of energy is palpable, enabling the viewer to almost visualise the artist’s hand before the rapidly moving with invigorating motion. Through this process, Dedy seeks to explore the inner workings of a child’s mind, and his striking works create a strong visual impact through their dazzling blend of emotion and technique, that surprises and destabilizes.
His works contain a sense of spirituality and he tries to convey the essence of a subject in his paintings.
