Gono Introduction

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!
