THE HARMONY OF WOMAN BODY IN GALIH REZA SUSENO PAINTINGS
Keywords:woman body, painting, spirituality, life
Painting as the work of art represents the values that the artist believes in interpreting life based on personal experiences and point of views. This study aims to explore various representations of harmony values in women’s bodies in Galih Reza Suseno paintings. The study was conducted at Bangunharjo, Sewon, Bantul, Indonesia during July-December 2020. This study used a qualitative method with an embedded single case study approach. The results showed Galih painted based on Imago Dei's concept, which is a value in Christian teachings, which means that man was created similar to God. Galih presents women's bodies in paintings based on the view that the world of imagery often deceives modern women. Galih defines women, not as objects but subjects who become themselves and are entitled to their bodies. Visualization of women's bodies in various gestures, expressions, and imagery represents the values of harmony within the spirituality of life.
