The Standing Man: A Statement and An Invitation by S. Dwi Stya Acong


G13 Gallery is pleased to present the inaugural solo exhibition of contemporary Indonesian artist S.Dwi Stya Acong in Malaysia. Aptly

titled ‘The Standing Man: A Statement and An Invitation’, the upcoming 37 year old painter who is popularly known as Acong, will be

showing 17 works in various dimensions featuring his signature subject matter, the heroic lone figure uniquely placed within or

engulfed by expansive, lush or violent natural elements as well as manmade surroundings.


Acong’s works continues his preoccupation with the willful tenacity of the individual in hostile environment or situations. Ultimately, his

will-to-power is a form of transcendence of illusions and limitations of reality to discovery of the self. His latest paintings can also be

read as a critical observation of our relations to ourselves, to society and nature which hopefully encourages a deeper reflection about

the state of contemporary man and his existence. Acong, who hails from Malang, East Java Indonesia, received his formal art training

from the Indonesia Institute of the Art, Yogyakarta, and is an active participant in local and international exhibitions. Specializing in oil

and acrylics, Acong is noted for his unique figurative approach in celebrating the individualist spirit, especially against the subjugation

of the mind, body and spirit by naturalforces and man-made efforts.

‘Solo Kedua’ - Solo Exhibition by Samsudin Lappo


G13 Gallery is pleased to present the inaugural solo exhibition of Malaysian artist Samsudin Lappo.

Samsuddin or fondly called Suddin is one of the founder and the backbone of the arts ensemble Di Kala Jingga established in 2001. This

showsimply-titled “Solo Kedua” is a significant continuation of and pays homage to his earlier show, “Kepingin” in 2009. Suddin will

exhibit at least ten of his latest masterpieces using mainly two mediums, oil paint and acrylic. These two mediums are the most

suited to his style and has been associated with him through all his previous paintings.


Suddin’s imagery could be said as akin to painting it straight from memory. Even though he tries to highlight the figure as his main

subject, nevertheless the figure itself is nothing more than a symbol for him to unlock the memories within to be projected in front of

our very eyes via romantic arrangements.


‘The Standing Man’ and ‘Solo Kedua will be open for general viewing from 20th Dec 2014 – 3rd Jan 2015 at G13 Gallery, gallery opens

daily from 11am to 5pm, closed on Sunday and Public Holiday. An official opening reception will be held on 20th December at 8pm
