Award-winning artist Triyadi Guntur Wiratmo is set to hold a solo exhibition titled An Adventure in Monodualism at Rachel Gallery & Ruang Dua Sembilan in West Jakarta from Nov. 30 to Dec. 15.

Triyadi, who said he had borrowed the term “monodualism” from his mentor and colleague Primadi Tabrani, defined monodualism as a concept used to unite two contrasting entities into a harmonious singularity.

“This concept becomes a work platform in a series of artworks. Two conflicting elements which are dissolved, make a whole new one,” said Triyadi in a statement.

Triyadi is known for his illustrations and paintings, but he is “not just a painter and not just an illustrator”.

Among his works to be showcased in the exhibition is Admiring Mooi Indie S. Sudjojono, depicting a Mooi Indie work of art being observed by people who are taking photos using smartphone cameras. The Mooi Indie painting is in colors, while its observers – obviously from the modern era – are painted in black and white.

Triyadi, who was born in Kudus, Central Java, received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in visual communication design from the Bandung Institute of Technology’s (ITB) School of Art and Design. He is now a lecturer at the institute.

Triyadi’s previous solo exhibitions included a show called Between the Lines at the National Gallery of Indonesia, Central Jakarta, in 2017 and another titled Emo Ergo Sum at Element Artspace in Singapore in 2012. (mut)
