"New Works by Indonesian artist Yunizar"
2005-04-07 until 2005-05-20
Sin Sin Fine Art
Hong Kong, , HK Hong Kong

Sin Sin Fine Art in Hong Kong presents an exciting solo exhibition by Indonesian artist Yunizar. Yunizar's work embodies the beauty and purity in human creativity. Picasso once said he spent 40 years learning to paint like a child again, and like the work of a child, Yunizar‚s work is pure and crude, emerging spontaneously from what appears as his unconscious mind. 

Yunizar is to be commended for refusing to compromise creativity, like so many artists and galleries do, by tailoring their art or the artists they choose to represent for purely commercial reasons. What is important to Yunizar is basic, pure creativity. He intentionally uses simple subject matter, objects which surround his daily life, and a simple painting and sketching technique to focus almost entirely on creativity and inventiveness. Yunizar believes that to waste mental energy on technique, style, colour, composition, etc. is to compromise himself as an artist, to become "less" in his own words. 

It is said about Yunizar that he is mature well beyond his years. If learning to paint like a child is the skill of a mature artist, then he has certainly achieved that. But his maturity is also reflected in the simplicity yet sophistication of his work. Naïve art is a term often associated with child-like art and unskilled artists, but it is clear in Yunizar's paintings, that his work is anything but naïve.
