Ode To Art is proud to present to you Dedy Sufriadi, and his newest body of work titled 'Between Intelligence and Intuition'. Born in Indonesia in 1976, Dedy began his artistic journey in Jogjakarta in 1995 and began to exhibit his work at the tender age of twenty. The recognition was inevitable as his radical and forceful works gained immediate interest, eventually earning him many awards and critical acclaim for his unique expressive style and abstract execution.
Dedy's works are a dazzling blend of emotion and technique. His constant exploration of society's definitions of aesthetics, skills and intelligence is seen in many of his works and the viewer almost always sees him return to the world of instinct and intuition that encompasses his work. Using defiant strokes, meaningful text, colours and numbers, he skillfully puts forth the inner workings of his mind and the in-born drive that makes his expressive artworks. However, the artworks are inherent with symbolism, meaning and disguised skill, making the viewer question how much of the art piece was intellectually designed and how much of it was free flowing though. Thus the artworks lie between both intelligence intuition and, as the aptly named exhibition will go on to show, give the viewer much to admire visually, and much to ponder mentally.
Ode To Art is delighted to hold this exhibition and display Dedy's works. We would be pleased to have you join us on this occasion and share in his artistic journey.
We hope to see you there!
