Drawing on draftsmanship, painting, literature, and installations, Michael Tedja's oeuvre erupts into a flamboyant and visually playful whole. His boisterous storms of imagery recall the CoBrA movement of artists from Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam that briefly banded together after World War II. Aiming to banish bourgeois rituals as well as theorizing around avant-garde art, they embraced expressionist spontaneity. But Michael Tedja has taken out the anti-intellectual, his painting is a kind of IQ test. With complimentary abstract and figurative visual vocabularies, Tedja's imagery is expressive and linguistic, full of references and autobiographical elements. This monograph encompasses large-scale paintings and drawings. By constantly recycling and repurposing images, Tedja explores the alterability of meaning within the visual context of globalization.
