SRIHADI SOEDARSONO: 70-YEAR JOURNEY OF ROSO by Farida Srihadi
by Farida Srihadi and A. Rikrik Kusmara
Srihadi Soedarsono (Born Solo, 4 December 1931) is not only an important figure in the development of Indonesia's modern art history, but also made significant contributions to the independence struggle for the Republic of Indonesia, and pioneered tertiary art education in Indonesia. Known as a prominent painter in Indonesia, Srihadi's private collection of his works on paper include sketches, drawings, and watercolors, recording his artistic development. Through these works, we are invited to follow Srihadi's journey in honing his 'roso'. For Srihadi, roso was a device for understanding reality through appreciation, and a device to control his own awareness of his process, intuitive as well as logical and systematic.
