Roddney Tjon Poen Gie is a versatile artist who transforms materials
found in nature into unique artworks. Just as he usually does with his popular
driftwood sculptures, these flat, whimsically shaped ‘pari udu’ (tropical wood)
pieces are decorated with acrylic paint in colorful abstract patterns. A closer
look at this cheerful composition reveals the playful figures of a man and a
woman holding hands.
