Pria Dari Tang ( The Man From Tang ) , 2016
40 x 25 x 40 cm
Adi Gunawan shows a man riding a horse, cast in bronze, in Pria Dari Tang (The Man from Tang). Both the man and the horse are depicted in Gunawan’s signature swelled, voluminous style. The sculpture explores the relationship between man and animal, a theme that is consistent in Gunawan’s oeuvre. Here, the emotion that is invoked is one of warmth and friendship, with the man’s hand gesture respectful and his expression one of peace and calm.
