For a tantalizing and awe-inspiring composition, Indonesian artist Susanto combines abstract and modern techniques for this entrancing work. He paints with oils, depicting a nude woman held in the iron grip of a giant hand on legs. From the enigmatic, metallic figure emerge yellow honey and bumble bees. Susanto uses themes of iron and metal gears to represent the support structures of his art and life. For the artist, the symbols present in this painting explore the importance and fragility of marriage.
