In­side the White Cube, is the first ex­hi­bi­tion to fea­ture Chris­tine Ay Tjoe works in Lon­don’s largest gallery’s site, White Cube Ber­mond­sey. Ay Tjoe is an In­done­sian con­tem­po­rary artist, born and raised in Ban­dung where she con­tin­ues to live and work. For this ex­hi­bi­tion, which lasted un­til Septem­ber 11, Ay Tjoe has as­sem­bled 12 paint­ings in­clud­ing two large-scale dip­ty­chs, the pin­na­cle of the se­ries. Ex­hib­ited in the North Gal­leries of White Cube, the space is el­e­gantly en­hanced by Ay Tjoe works. The paint­ings in­vite the view­ers to come closer and dis­tin­guish sketches of draw­ings. The lines, in par­tic­u­lar, was ac­quired when she was study­ing print­mak­ing. Fig­ures that ap­pear once view­ers come closer are metaphors for fig­ures of author­ity, the ones who can im­pact our be­hav­ior. There is a har­mo­nious use of spac­ing be­tween each pieces as the paint­ings are in var­i­ous sizes. And to place one of the dip­ty­chs in the mid­dle of the room, it en­hances the point of Con­cealer Player be­ing one of the pin­na­cle, quickly it be­comes the fo­cal point of the space.

Along­side Sri­hadi Soedar­sono’s world class ex­hi­bi­tion which took place in the main build­ing of Na­tional Gallery of In­done­sia last Fe­bru­ary, a book en­ti­tled 70 Year Jour­ney of Roso was also pub­lished. The book

con­tains the works of Sri­hadi dis­played on the ex­hi­bi­tion in 1945 to 2015 time frames, the pe­riod when he was learn­ing to deepen his fond­ness in paint­ing. Through this book the read­ers will get to know fur­ther about the 84-years-old mae­stro who grew up and thrived along with the rise of art science in In­done­sia. The read­ers will also ex­pe­ri­ence the jour­ney of Sri­hadi’s arts through his sketches and paint­ings, and then

fi­nally find the evo­lu­tion con­cept that he called as roso.
