Reinier Asmoredjo paints in bright sunny colors and in a stylistic semi- figurative way, often about his fascination and faith with the daily struggle of life of marginalised women, in oil on canvas. Many women are black, from the interior Maroon tribes to be recognised by their traditional wear of knee length checkered cotton pangis, tied at the hips and by the intricately braided hair. Asmoredjo says the so called black skin color is the most interesting to paint, because in his experience this skin-color can only be portrayed on canvas by applying all colors of the rainbow, layer after layer, in a specific order. Time and time again the sun, a peacock, fruit and flowers are returning symbols of faith, fertility, procreation and beauty in his paintings.
The multicultural wealth of Surinamese culture is an often returning theme in the work of this artist. He concentrates mainly on daily life and dancing maroon women in their traditional garb of brightly colored checkered pangi’s (piece of cloth tied at the hip), but also the Wajang-culture of his own heritage is often portrayed. He stands out because of his clever compositions and use of flowing round contours in bright, sometimes primary colors.
Although Asmoredjo is best known for his paintings he has been known to experiment with ceramics as well.
