Restu poses the following fundamental question: what is “real”?
Through a methodology and visual prose that blurs the edges between the
representational and the abstract, he communicates visceral set of profound
experiences contained within the simplest of occasions: a motorcycle ride through a
forest. Without caution or forewarning, Restu experiences something transcendental:
A sense that his body and mind (or spirit) are separated.
A sense that his self is intangibly yet inextricably connected to the universe.
A sense difficult to extrapolate with the written word.
Intellectually, as well as instinctively, Restu attempts to deconstruct these transient
ideas through painting. It is argued that it was in such a moment that his mind
achieved a sense of true clarity, separate from distractions present in our everyday
