(born in Bandung 1987, lives and works in Bandung) presents a painting titled The next Sentence is True, the Previous Sentence is False (2017), describing one way of communication by approaching daily reality with a rather impressionistic style of painting. “I took a snapshot of two people sitting without any tendencies (intentions)… But their sitting position acquires a tendency when it enters form or an art performance,” he said. Because Zico has chosen to record a natural human gesture, and then to align it along an art history context (particularly Western Modern), his work acquires a different understanding/interpretation, even one that is so far out of the artist’s control. Drama(tization) emerges from the way the image is presented, and it automatically acquires its historical meaning. Zico extensively revisits painting concepts as found in the modern era, in an effort to discover value within a contemporary context.
