Statement

Agus Suwage is an Indonesian artist. His works range from paintings to sculptures and installations within the genre of the portrait and self-portrait.

He started as a graphic designer which explains his strong desire to communicate his passion for the strength of the image. Initially his charcoal sketches focused on conflicts between individual and communal values and he also tried to express diverse feelings such as anxiety, fear, depression, suppression, acceptance and opposition. From 1999 onwards he started to work mostly in oil and acrylic on canvas exploring the gaps between social and economic classes, hypocrisy, corruption and consumerism.

The emancipated woman and especially the artist Frida Kahlo are the focus of Suwage’s latest works. Kahlo is depicted to represent the oppression of women in Indonesia as a kind of martyr, while Suwage also uses the Christian iconography of Saint Sebastian tied to a tree pierced by arrows.
