Andy Dewantoro Exploring the Townscape Unconventionally
In the townscape theme, Dewantoro depicts city lanes, buildings, center districts, residential regions, bridges, lighting, and suburban settlement corners. He takes an unusual approach to this issue, forcing viewers to see metropolitan environments differently.
Abandonment: Elegance in Despair
In Dewantoro’s works, buildings, bridges, and streetlights often appear abandoned. They meld into bleak landscapes like frozen ghost cities.
Dewantoro uses “space and time.” Space represents natural and life places, while time represents the constant change.
The Harmonious Discord of “Space and Time”
Space and time, two enigmatic components, are alluring and powerful, sometimes trapped between “continuity” and “change” throughout existence. In “Language of Space and Time,” Dewantoro shows how these two aspects interact and impact each other.
In his own words, “Time may not be attractive to some. Sometimes time-worn items are damaged or outmoded. I think time passes quickly and imperceptibly, leaving memories. In his written statement on Tuesday (3/9/2023), Andy Dewantoro eloquently described his desire to convey the feeling and memory of that temporal voyage in this exhibition.
