“Beneran, dikelilingi sepi itu candu! Coba!”
for Gendis exhibition, 2013
Mixed media on paper
At first when I was working on Gendis exhibition back on July – August 2013 this artwork is one of my non-favourite. I didn’t like the vibe but decided to exhibit it anyway (because I like that she’s doing the knitting thing in this drawing, ah, woman).
Yesterday when I go through Gendis exhibition folder for a press request, I suddenly stopped longer on this one and my heart scream “OMG, I love it!” I love it even more than my first favourite from Gendis series.
Life and the constant change. According to the changing love and favourite, I believe something has changed inside me between July 2013 – January 2014. The drawing’s vibe which I used to “not-really-like-it-but-whatever” surprisingly become my favourite. It touches me in a unexplainable way. Maybe, maybe I become the solitude junkie as her (according to the artwork title) or maybe I just admire her comfortable-happy face surrounded only by silence and yarn? I don’t really know.
But as I always said to myself, “never fight the change inside yourself, because it’s always for the better. Embrace it.”

Thankyou Katrin Figge for the article.
There’s a little girl named Shadow
She always see but can’t be seen
She hide behind the light and under the sky
She listen to your soft whisper at night
She saw your deepest secret closely
She keep your untold dreams in her arms
But she keep on silent, just standing or sitting in a corner
Mermaid is a dream keeper especially the scary one
Shadow met her once and kiss her forehead without her knowing
Hopefully she will keep all the scary dream forever
Deep … deep under the darkest sea beside a breathing coral
But she knew it’s just a hopeless hope
Shadow, to always see but not to be seen …
Why stay in the real world while you can floating between the purple cloud and falling stars?
