'Intense colors, clever compositions and skillful fusion of a multitude of techniques and materials inspired by the multidisciplinary artistic background of Sri Irodikromo…..

The art in the latest collection by Sri Irodikromo is a fascinating blend of qualities bold and delicate, daring yet subtle and although the work seems grand and impulsive it shows beautiful workmanship and is intricately detailed. True to the title of her new exhibition “Prit Pangi”, the artist ‘bares it all’ and with all holds barred, gives free reign to her creativity and her urge to experiment. The work is an artistically skilled fusion of a multitude of techniques, materials and cultural influences originating out of our diverse Surinamese heritage.
At first the paintings are striking because of the passionate color palette of red, orange and yellow hues, interspersed with some carefully applied contrasting color details. The intricate craftsmanship and the diverse texture of each piece are also immediate eye catchers but it is only upon closer inspection that the many techniques used by the artist truly become evident. The collection is a result of daring experiments in the combination of several techniques and materials and the multi disciplinary background of Sri Irodikromo’s art career is clearly evident throughout the entire collection.
Batik, embroidery, stenciling, traditional maroon pangi fabric, textile marker drawings, techniques inspired by quilting and colorful acrylic paint work, make each piece in the collection into an original and unusual work of art. Take into consideration also the skillful and sometimes subtle way in which the artist has managed to incorporate cultural elements out of our diverse cultural heritage such as maluana’s, jarang kepang horses, wood carving motifs and much more, and most will agree that the creativity and skill of Sri Irodikromo have been abundantly demonstrated.
Although the majority of this recent work is concentrated mainly around the subject of the typical Surinamese woman, Sri Irodikromo also experiments with some abstract paintings and some paintings of birds. Her latest work also includes several ‘raku stoked’ ceramics and small ink sketches, which once again prove the versatility of this talented young artist.
