Indonesian artist Srihadi Sudarsono regarded as one of the most renowned and prolific living modern artists, his ability to capture the constant changes in nature and the cosmic world around him, is apparent in his poetic paintings. In 1962, Sudarsono received his Master’s degree from Ohio State University, exposed to Post-War art in the USA at the zenith of Abstract Expressionism, Srihadi was mesmerized by the potential of Western modernism and began experimenting with myriad styles. However, he soon realized the importance of needs to develop his own individual style. Having returned to Indonesia in search of his root, the “root” begins from the inner beliefs and soul not just the external world. As a believer of Javanese cosmology, strongly relied on one’s personal laku batin, or inner behavior, when in the process of building his creative opus, this belief is reflected in the works of Sudarsono.
