Untitled (from In the foothills of Mount Bromo)

“Using the techniques of copper plate intaglio etching, my work – finely detailed, closely cropped and intentionally stark – explores a culture and its traditions to reflect both my embodiment of Javanese culture as well as my status as a cultural and ethnic outsider. Exposing the intoxicating world of mystical symbols, myth and ritual, my prints explore the aesthetic intensity of my Javanese experiences. Creating a narrative of my personal demons and my embodied experiences, these images eschew cultural fossilization or reification.”
