Inspired by themes of traditionalism and modernism, Javanese artist Reza Dwakiss paints this abstract composition. Hues of white, blue, yellow, and black are painted in acrylic, while pictographs and writing are done in permanent marker, depicting various figures and a cityscape. Says the artist, "This painting tells us about the transition/degradation of traditional village community trust towards modern, sophisticated society. These are myths that are still believed in the lives of rural communities that transition into modern society, so there are many pros and cons."
