Santy Saptari Art Consulting is curating Jumaadi's show At the End of the Day, Love Will Find a Way. Jumaadi (b. 1973, Sidoarjo, East Java), is a multidisciplinary artist working across a range of mediums, including painting, drawing, performance and installation. Lives and works between Australia and Indonesia, Jumaadi’s work is deeply influenced by Indonesian local traditions and cultures, including wayang kulit (shadow puppets), traditional Balinese paintings, rituals and textiles.

 

At the End of the Day, Love Will Find a Way is Jumaadi’s first solo exhibition in Singapore. A sense of re-discovery characterises these new works by Jumaadi. Trees, mountains and figures of men and women are reinscribed on kain belacu cloth, the material for traditional Balinese painting from Kamasan village. While these new paintings still compose his figures as floating in space, they are now framed and shaped by a clear border of mountains. Reflecting the tribulations of the pandemic where his family was fractured by the sovereign border between Australia and Indonesia, At the End of the Day, Love Will Find a Way is an exhibition of love and resolution narrated with the dark humour Jumaadi is already known for.
