2:00 - 6:00 PM
My formative years were surrounded by geographical and spiritual duality: East/West - Buddhist/Christian. These aspects of duality are evident in an ever-changing multi-cultural society. Specifically, they influence my interest in life and death, absence and presence. In my process, the act of art making is to generate possibilities and questions, because, naturally, things are uncertain. In this possibility, I can start seeing a renewal in ideas, concept, and emotion. In my practice, I explore the versatility of my media through drawing, painting, and installation. —Chintia Kirana
