Roby Dwi Antono

KIRA (Burnished Gold)


Roby Dwi Antono proffers a darkly endearing, emotionally-charged take on childhood nostalgia.

KIRA, a new rendition of one of the artist’s distinctive characters, has crystal resin tears carefully placed under each eye — imbuing the otherwise-robust bronze with the paradox of heroism and helplessness found throughout Dwi Antono’s practice.
