'Procession' by Adam de Boer


The Californian artist, Adam de Boer, recently paid a visit to Java in order to explore his Indonesian roots. After looking through old family photos and meeting distant relatives, he learnt and participated in the lifestyle of a cultural heritage he had yet to embrace. He took inspiration from folk art, furniture, and the local tradesmen, and designers, then combined it with his own Western experiences to create a hybridised series of paintings, which are now on display at the Riflemaker Gallery until the 4th May.

The exhibition, which he calls 'Jalen', consist of gauche and oil paintings that depict everyday Eurasian life. The method he used is one of Javan tradition, and it called 'batik' and is a way of producing coloured designs on textiles by waxing the canvas, then dyeing it.
