John Lie A Fo creates modern and highly expressive works of art, in
which he alludes to aspects and elements from various traditional cultures and
customs. His imagery, which is never literal or realistic, but rather playful
and suggestive, holds a strong universal appeal regardless of the context. But
those familiar with the subject, here for example Javanese Jaran Kepang, are
likely to recognize the symbolisms.
