The Present Stretching Realism In its development, and even more than that of course reality can be left out. Teks Darma Ismayanto Standing firmly on the basic concept of realists like F. Sigit Santosa, Ronald Manullang, etc. besides showing their expertise in processing the shape mimetically, also filled in their work with message contents. Realist at this level, it seems that he is not just as a measurer of how far the drawing technique ability would be in imitating the object, but also how the artist entered his messages, ideas/concepts into his works. Making use of realist as basic in the process of an object only, when they further develop the basic concept on the idea perception, the work inclination that came into being just looked moving outside that tendency itself. On top of that there is a tendency of eagerness to wipe out all reality. Pay close attention to the work of I Wayan Cahya, objective borders on this work looked restricted to the object being used. I Wayan has taken the model from its original object like woman, animal, etc. He recorded by making photographs. The photo output is processed by him later into a paper design or sketch. Occasionally it is not just a sketch scratch output on canvas only, but also a photography assembly which is joined manually. Utilizing realist as basic technique processing of the object, when the object is transferred on the canvas of Wayan’s works, apparently that object entered a new world. The thinking world of the artist. Wayan works as a unity, make up a combined representation between real figures with a strong surrealistic aura. Just observe attentively one of them at “metamorphosis #5”, at this work Wayan seemed to utilize the body of a woman as basic object to bring along “roving” into his imagination nature. Following the track of how far the realist tendency developed in Indonesia, it’s visible that is a reason of performing “Objective Border”. So that part of the painters being involved, are those showing to have certain indications and in the possession of strong consistency in line with realism awareness. Wherever they are moving from realist inclinations as basic concept, to be utilized afterwards by them to achieve a “typical individual movement”. Then even though using the same basic concept, the works that came into sight remain with the same special features offered by each artist. That peculiarity appeared through themes as well as painting work techniques. Likewise between the works of Wayan with Ronald Manullang. Technically Ronald developed realism tradition combined with his ability to correlate popular ideas. His objects are human figures having experience of the role of deconstruction and position. He utilized existing snapshots and photographs.
