Kokok P. Sancoko born in Nganjuk, East Java, he studied painting at the Indonesia Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta. Throughout his artistic practice Kokok has been deeply dedicated to exploring the possibilities of the painting surface through the dissection and intersection of forms and colour, often reducing the image of a concrete object such as an apple or a flower to its most essential planes: in a sense a kind of ‘abstract realism’. The juxtaposed images in these atmospheric, gorgeously coloured paintings, rendered in varying degrees of concreteness and translucence, comprise a kind of virtual world of memories, perceptions and impressions of the past, the present and the future.
