The paintings of Enggar Rhomadioni are indexical forms of biographical and quotidian objects related to one’s memory. By investigating the histories and narratives of these objects, Rhomadioni’s works employ artistic juxtaposition meant to provoke conversations within ourselves and others. Rhomadioni views the idea of memory as something that is emotional, rather than just an intellectually organized database or archive. Through materials and objects, one understands oneself, thus, Rhomadioni’s works offer the idea of ‘intersubjectivity’, where the objects in his paintings prompt our basic ability to recognize ourselves through others, and to connect with the painter’s experience.
