Details

Wearing a topeng, or "mask," a man engages with another mask as he performs the Beksan Bancak-Doyok, a traditional Javanese mask dance with a comical theme. In this freestyle oil on canvas painting from Tales Suparman, the Indonesian artist employs rich tones of brown, yellow, red, green, and blue to portray the masked dancer against a black background; the performer wears decorated batik cloth and a traditional headdress called a blangkon. The work suggests a surrealist influence, as the dancer appears with two elbows on his left arm, and depicts the duality of the characters of Bancak and Doyok, who usually appear in Indonesian theatrical performances as buffoons who are brothers.
