Christine Ay Tjoe

b. 1973, Indonesia

Christine Ay Tjoe, was born in Bandung, West-Java, Indonesia, and is one of Indonesia’s most celebrated contemporary female artists. She graduated from studies in Printmaking and Graphic Art at the Bandung Institute of Technology in 1997. Beginning her career as a graphic artist and exploring drypoint technique, Ay Tjoe then moved to working with textiles. Her practice encompasses myriad art forms, from painting on canvas and works on paper to sculpture and large scale installation.

Ay Tjoe’s experimentation with drypoint has heavily influenced her practice for she continues to use line to structure her works. Her palette is characterised by earthy tones and deep reds; strong, charged colours that allude to powerful emotions. In her delicate works, Ay Tjoe aims to create various sensory experiences depending on how the viewer chooses to interpret the colour, form, and movement. She embraces the emergence of characters or creatures that form spontaneously in her paintings, using them as representatives for forces of authority and higher beings. Her works are a reflection of her inner thoughts and happenings in her personal life.

Christine Ay Tjoe lives and works in Bandung, Indonesia.
