Comes from the shadow :: Jumaadi
14 Sept - 17 Nov 2019
Gallery 3

Official Opening: 6pm Fri 13 Sept 2019

My works attempt to become the shadow, or perhaps they originated from shadow. They are often about birth, love and death, where displacement, isolation, connectivity and separation are emphasised.’ JUMAADI

Jumaadi’s exhibition, Comes from the shadow, brings together a collection of works that are about birth and death. Life is there too, frail and fluid between these absolutes. The artist’s reference to “shadow” is metaphoric, through his exploration of the struggles of human existence, but it is also literal. One of his major influences is the Indonesian art of shadow theatre, or wayang kulit. Although there is darkness in the work, this is constantly offset by light, whimsy and humour. Jumaadi’s art is never about one thing. His iconography is endlessly evocative, seeming to embody one thing and its opposite all at once. Comes from the shadow is the epitome of this space of suspension, highlighting the relationship between opposites, and the confronting closeness of life and death.

Primarily based in Sydney, Jumaadi lives an itinerant life, travelling across Australia and internationally for exhibitions. He was the subject of Nicole Kelly’s winning work, Jumaadi + Clouds + Rain from Lismore Regional Gallery’s 2018 Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize.
