We are cordially invite you to the opening of Artist in Residence Exhibition #7
"JUNGLE FLAME" Solo exhibition by Adam de Boer (US)

at REDBASE Foundation Yogyakarta
Redbase Foundation, Yogyakarta is pleased to present Jungle Flame, resident artist Adam de Boer’s first solo exhibition in Indonesia. As a current Fulbright scholar, based in Yogyakarta, this exhibition is the result of de Boer’s ongoing and intense engagement with Indonesian aesthetic and craft traditions. The seven new multimedia works that constitute Jungle Flame are a reflection of the artist’s multi-layered artistic process, steeped in his critical investigation of identity and the appropriation, or as he states, “misappropriation of cultural forms.” De Boer’s enquiry began in 2010 with his first trip to Indonesia; a trip that awakened his desire to understand his own hybrid identity as a Dutch-Indonesian-American born and raised in Southern California, thousands of miles from his family’s roots in the Central Java town of Purwokerto.
Fundamental to de Boer’s practice is his attention to materials that have, for centuries, dominated the practice of Javanese craft and culture, including batik, carved wood, and leatherwork. For Jungle Flame, de Boer builds on his interest in the possibilities afforded by the unlikely synthesis of seemingly contradictory elements, that when combined, become a congruous image, the result of de Boer’s thoughtful layering of material, process, and conceptual themes.

And another #DesignerShowcase commences! I discovered @sableandsoul in London at the #NewDesigners exhibition a couple months back, and I was instantly drawn to their inky brush strokes and moody hues. Designer Hayley and her business partner currently reside in the Scottish Borders; they share boundless similarities in style and artistry, which brings their textile interior brand Sable & Soul to fruition. Enjoy x
