Entang Wiharso’s Metal Relief Sculptures

by Andy SmithPosted on

Entang Wiharso’s metal relief wall sculptures are crafted from aluminum, car paint, pigment, resin, and other materials, offering the Indonesian artist’s surreal narratives. A recent statement says that his work “not only reverence for the folklore and history of his own Javanese culture, but also a strong recognition of the yearning for identity and belonging.”

“I depict the condition of humans who are often divided by complex, multilayered political, ethnic, racial, and religious systems: they co-exist yet their communication is limited and indirect,” the artist says, in a statement. “Figures are interconnected by intuitive as well as intellectual linkages, including ornamental vegetation, tongues, tails, intestines, animal skin patterns, fences and detailed landscapes.”
