As a fashion artist & painter, Tiarma who’s aims to support diversity in Indonesian fashion through active participation in the local & international fashion scenes is passionate about developing the creativity of young Indonesian designers through workshops & internship programs & events. She sees her key role in the facilitation of fashion at Poleng Studio as a medium of expression and communication through various exhibitions, lectures, writing, performances & forums.
She has brought up pink plastics & synthetic fur to highlight the fickleness, volatility & falsehood that permeate our dearly held beliefs, influences & lifestyles. Through her bold conceptual approaches to art, fashion design & pop culture, Tiarma has explored themes such as love & lust, foreign influences on Indonesian culture and mass consumerism to name but a few. Her art is intended to show the hyper reality in the contemporary context. She used fashion in her painting as a medium to express the journey of her performances. She shows her exploration of her free spirit in her painting. Her artwork uses pink as the main color. She uses this color to give an eccentric sensation for her creation. She used pink also because the color is very girly, kitsch, synthetic. She has worked quite consistently with pink since the beginning of her career as a fashion artist in 1998. It has been her signature to use this brilliant color in her artwork.
In parallel too, Tiarma chose Batik as the aesthetical cornerstone and also the subject-matter of her artwork in the global contemporary art discourse.
