    Inc. Text: Dr, Lois Parker; Drawings: by Pintor Sirait.


    "Pintor Sirait is an artist of three continents: an Indonesian, of course, born in Germany of a German mother, and educated in the United States. The work of every artist, out of necessity, eventually becomes a personal panorama of the culture or cultures that created him, however much refracted and tinted and flavored by the artist’s individual genius. In an era dominated by the ethos of globalization, few artists are better positioned to contemplate the heady confluence of world cultures in the twenty-first century than Pintor Sirait."

    - Jamie James


    "Indonesian primal art consisted of amulitic, symbolic objects created and deployed to negotiate relationships with the unknowable. But with most contemporary art production, Pintor laments, there's a disconnect from this intrinsic Indonesian-ness, that limits its significance in the broader context of art across vast continents, and vast expanses of time from the day a petroglyph rst graced a cave wall until the day human society expires, as everything ultimately does. "

    - Susi Johnston


    "Art is a compelling force that interacts with, and enhances our conscious and subconscious minds. Shamans, masters of primitive art created with intention works rich in symbolic meaning that communicated via the language of the soul.

    Knowledge of symbols, and how the subconscious ‘reads’ and responds to art are potent facets of Indonesian artist Pintor Sirait’s creative oeuvre. So much so that his gift of translating inspiration into wonderful 3 dimensional forms has distinguished him as one Indonesia’s most important contemporary sculptors."

    - Richard Horstman
