Agus ‘Baqul’ Purnomo


Agus Baqul explored lines which are showing inter-related expressions, which are rain, gold, and numbers. Lines in the forms of numbers are the unique choice of Agus’ aesthetic-technique though they do not always materialised. Agus is a painter that seem to be immensely enjoying the composition for the fact that there are potentials to overcome their boundaries. Mathematically, numbers are not more than the base of sistemic composition formation but for Agus, they are also imaginary lines that can be contextualized according to his will of the heart.

We live in the phenomenon of the ever-intertwined various aspects which we are forced to accept for a long time with confiction that all aspects of live must be definite, including the relation of people and their nature. Rain, gold, and even numbers are parts of nature and in essence, humans are also part of nature. In this sense, Agus would like to show that the intentional relation is in essence is a modus of life’s richness.
