    An Evening of Art II

    Thank you so much to all of you that participated in making “An evening of art II” a complete success. It was a pleasure seeing all of your faces. To those of you that couldn’t make it I hope to see you next year.

    It was wonderfully encouraging to hear all of the positive feedback and comments on the paintings. I look forward to continually making this an increasingly better event.

    Once again, Thank You for your patronage.

    Gono Introduction

    gono-1000
    Sudargono 2006

    While recently travelling in Indonesia I was able to reconnect myself with the artist Sudargono. First of all, let me be the first to welcome ‘Gono’ to the JL Galleries family. This is one of his newest pieces painted this year. Over the course of a week in late September, I spent some time catching up with him and learning about his new style.

    During 2006 Gono has dealt with the loss of his father, painter Sudarso. This has been devastating to not only Gono but to the whole of Indonesia. Sudarso was the ‘Master’ of Indonesian Realism, as well as being one of the fathers of modern Indonesian painting. Have a look through the Sudarso Gallery.

    In May, Gono and his family were fortunate to escape the 6.3 earthquake without serious injury. They quickly pooled their resources to aid others that were seriously injured or homeless. Gono, his wife Tuti and children Gabe and Gintani fed, clothed, entertained and educated hundreds of people who were divastated over the course of the disaster.

    There is still much to be done!

    Gono Clown Fantasyland

    ‘Clown Fantasyland’

    Gono 1997
    Oil on Canvas 10 * 13 feet
    Beth Gates & Geoff Dorn, California
    If you look closely in the middle of this painting you can see the two story government and its reflection in the pond. The ‘Clown’ reference is to the politicians that work in this building. This one was a treat to see in person with its massive size. So much to see in all the psychedelic abstractions.

    Gono ‘In Window’

    Sudargono ‘In Window’

    Acrylic on Canvas 1984 16 * 20 inches
    Private Collection Jerry Kraan, Holland
    This painting is an interesting preview of some of the direction he would be taking in the 1990′s. The question is what is in the window? I get a ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ vibe. Even though this painting is not very large I get an oversized canvas impression from it in this photo. Besides something being in the window, it seems that the window has become an entity in itself, a ‘mask window’.

    Gono Famous Cive Door

    Gono¬† ‘Famous Cive Door’

    Oil on Canvas 1994 62 * 51 inches

    Private Collection Ingrid Quell, Germany

    One of my all time favorite Sudargono paintings. I find it so fun and invigorating to have a world class painter immortalize the rubber ducky. I can hear Ernie from Sesame Street singing every time I see this painting; “Rubber ducky, your the one… you make bath time so much fun…” When I first saw ‘Famous Cive Door’ it was already sold but not yet shipped. The buyer had called Gono and asked him on what he was working. When he described the current painting she bought it sight unseen! More of us art ‘patrons’ should be so bold.

    Sudargono 1999

    East Timor was the scene of much distruction and genocide at the hand of the Indonesian Military. This painting is a refrence to those battles and the struggle for independence in East Timor. The bees are representative of the soldiers.
