Paintings and sculpture by a group of female artists from different backgrounds, celebrating the human form through the nude form, body language, reflective moments and relationships, by Indonesian artist Ade Artie Tjakra, Dutch artist Jeanette Bijlmer and Taiwanese French artist Sun I Yu.
One of the first female painters to hold a solo exhibition of nudes in Jakarta, Tjakra's works subtly convey depth in the body language of her figures. While Bjilmer's work explore versatility of the human body with greater abstraction, her works are strong in colour and composition, capturing body language and gesture, and feelings and emotions in relationships. Having travelled widely through Europe and Asia, Sun has had her work in both private and public collections, and has held exhibitions in Taiwan and Singapore.
