Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Art is, undeniably, an integral part of the culture of any civilization. In her book, "Problems of Art", Langer criticized society's lack of awareness on the important role art plays in building an individual's character with moral values and responsibilities toward the environment. The emotions poured and conveyed through art are not merely accessories of mankind's intellectual properties but are important ingredients that actually make an individual 'human'. The act of collecting artworks, as often done by art patrons, can be seen as a way to bring oneself closer to the mediums that are the vessels carrying such ingredients. The relationship between collectors as art patrons and the artists as the creators of art can be seen as mutualistic symbiosis. On one hand, the artists guarantee the availability of artworks with fresh ideas and emotions. On the other hand, through the acts of collecting and showcasing artworks, the patrons are financially and morally supporting the artists to continually create art. This symbiosis is vital, especially for emerging artists where the lack of resource and less public appreciation continually threaten their artistic processes. Like a group of koi fish that, with their long age and incredible swimming strength, stand guard and look after the newly laid eggs at the bottom of a pond, art patrons allow young and emerging art creators to survive and grow to the point where they could stand on their own and actually make the world listen to what they have say through their art.

Artist Profile

Born: 1996

Based in: Yogyakarta

The dream like visuals in Aurora's surrealistic artworks pop with vivid colors. She deftly illustrates visual puns, rebellion and desire to break free from restrains and shackles of a conservative society with cheerful colors. Each work is a story waiting to be told. She draws inspiration from her personal experiences, everyday social issues and symbolisms found in movies, music and literature (classic 20th century to modern 21st century). Aurora often creates works as a thematic series, following though with a specific style, period and narrative.
