White Space Art Asia is proud to announce our first solo show for the year, ‘Eyes Wide Open’ with Indonesian artist Mutiara Riswari. With several group exhibitions and a solo exhibition in Jakarta under Riswari’s belt, the UOB ‘Painting of the Year’ finalist presents a lauded, audacious oeuvre that speaks of her artistry and command of her craft.
From 24 February to 25 March 2022, the Yogyakarta-based artist will have her inaugural show in Singapore with White Space Art Asia.
A captivating spectacle of evocative brushwork and striking colours, ‘Eyes Wide Open’ is an intimate exploration into the psychology of colour. With each brushstroke laid upon each other in various combinations ranging from pastel hues to earthy tones, there are no limitations in Riswari’s polychromatic universe. The aesthetic phenomena of her works, quite literally, is an eye-opening experience to the expressive potential of colour.
‘Eyes Wide Open’ is a series that reveals a new language written in colour. For Riswari, the viewer’s intrinsic response to her pastiche of colours establishes a dialogue between the audience and artwork. It is this response that offers a space for viewers to reflect and meditate on their feelings in the prismatic cosmos that Riswari has enacted. In her universe, colours are the mirrors of reality, and its through colours that our eyes become wide open.
