Arin Dwihartanto Sunaryo is dedicated to painting, pushing its boundaries with innovative techniques, and distilling his passion for comic books, science fiction, and Japanese manga into abstract compositions. His paintings capture shifts between solid and liquid, static and animated, synthetic and natural, and are rooted in the embrace of chance. Acquired for the Guggenheim’s collection, Sunaryo’s Volcanic Ash Series #4 (2012) was made using a combination of resin and, as pigment, volcanic ash from the 2010 eruption of Gunung Merapi, the most active volcano in Indonesia. Sunaryo has participated in numerous group exhibitions including the Asian International Art Exhibition, Ayala Museum, Manila (2005); and Marcel Duchamp in Southeast Asia, Equator Art Projects, Gillman Barracks, Singapore (2012).
