Had been trained in sculpture-making, now focusing on her drawings, an artistic practice with which she has a long-standing relationship.
Rega describes her drawing series with a phrase by Jalaluddin Rumi, “[do] not feel lonely, this universe is inside you.” The artist takes a Sufism approach (a mystical Islamic practice to establish contact with God) to her art-making.
Using microscopic photos of the human body as visual reference, Rega employs the automatic drawing technique, where she draws the same object(s) repeatedly for specific durations of time. Her drawing in the exhibition shows an interpretation of the notion that the universe lies within us.
As an addition, Rega explores ideas of simple activities such as Dzikir, an Islamic ritual in which a person is required to repeat a one-word chant, could bring us to a transcendental state and therefore closer to God.Rega achieved the Nominee: Best Album Artwork Anugerah Musik Indonesia 2016 and 2nd Prize, Young Artist Award by Redbase Foundation, she joint ‘ARTJOG12’ and ‘Soemardja Award’ Organized by Galeri Soemardja.
