SECOND CHANCE is a solo exhibition by Indonesian artist, Pupuk Daru Purnomo, curated by Hermanto Soerjanto.
What would you do if you were given a second chance? In the case of Pupuk Daru Purnomo, he looked at his paintings from a different point of view, mindset, and awareness, and recreated them by incorporating different technique and colours. This second chance was brought to him through smartphone technology.
Pupuk Daru Purnomo is a painter well-known for his very expressive brushstrokes. Like many of his contemporaries, he would photograph each completed work with his smartphone. However, it was through a photo-editing app that he was able to see his paintings in a different light and discovered a new window of possibilities to re-execute them.
In this exhibition, Pupuk will present 6 pairs of his abstract paintings, each comprises the first attempt and the recreated piece.
