Originally from Padang, Indonesia.
Graduated from Institut Seni Indonesia (ISI) Yogyakarta
In the eyes of Meistoria Ve, there is a certain order to life,Â which to many, without the hindsight of closer observation,Â may seem chaotic on the surface. Through the meticulousÂ observations that this artist makes about the world aroundÂ him, beautiful studies of the very matter that make up ourÂ existence emerge.
Whether they are studies of wood, water, elastics, or evenÂ cosmic matter, Ve sees order within the chaos that ourÂ casual gaze may take for granted. And it is this order thatÂ the artist lays down on canvas, as though he were a scribeÂ recording snapshots of the very processes of life in action.
For these processes to happen, a certain amount of spaceÂ becomes necessary. This we begin to realize when our mind extrapolates the intricacies andÂ visual interactions we see in Veâ€™s works beyond the canvas.
These processes, while they may appear as abstractions visually, have tangible analogs to ourÂ human experience, expressing the familiar notions of harmony, hope and love.
Veâ€™s works are currently on display as part of theÂ Yogya Invasion 01: Three Degrees of AbstractionÂ group exhibition, that will be on until July 31, 2012.
