    Engagements with Nature: Modern Indonesian Art

    Viewed as a whole, modern Indonesian art seems like a mosaic on the move. In this mosaic is then reflected the spirit of the age, which at the same time relates to the life of the Indonesian people in general. Indonesian artists today look upon themselves as a member of a bigger family, the family of man. They know that they have received something from this big family, and whenever they create, they know that they not only contribute something to the artistic wealth of their nation, but also to the artistic wealth of man.
    - Ahmad Sadali

    Bonhams is pleased to present the works of two distinctive modern Indonesian artists, Ahmad Sadali and Fadjar Sidik whose works explored conceptions of nature expressed through the geometrical treatment of space and colour.

    As seen in Lelehan Emas Pada Relung (Molten Gold on a Niche) (Lot 12), Sadali's works invariably express a careful interplay of dualities in the realization of visible and invisible form, in the deployment of subtle and accent hues, and execution of ridges of impasto mixed media - clay, marble dust, glue, sand and oil paint - and gold leaf against flatter areas of composition. They express an instinctive and emotional connection with nature, going beyond the physical and the manifest.
