A journey through Asian art

Lucia Hartini – Indonesia: Born in 1959, and living in Yogyakarta, the cultural centre of Java, Lucia Hartini has been a leading Indonesian painter for a number of decades, involved in numerous exhibitions in that country. Her work focuses on a personal vision of individuals living in a literal and metaphoric cosmic world, subject to magic forces outside their control. While she uses some of the symbolism of European Surrealism, her images reflect a deeply held Javanese belief in the immaterial world. Here is a link to the artist's website.
