Bonny Setiawan (b. Wonogiri, C. Java, 1968) Panggung Sandiwara Kethoprak Sayembara (Stage Theater Kethoprak Competition)

Item Description:

The theater in Java has been an inspiration for the works of artists like Bonny Setiawan. Here, he visualizes his version of a ketoprak episode which shows a battle between a bespectacled gentleman wearing a tuxedo with bow tie and shoes against a man wearing a simple vest and checkered sarong. The action of the gentleman with his powers manages to cause the man to lose control of his dagger. The show is enjoyed by many onlookers painted on the bottom of the canvas. They seem to be in a chaotic battle themselves. The man on the bottom right corner of the painting seems to be outraged, while a man holds a bullhorn/megaphone perhaps to calm the audience.
