"Working with bronze in a historical context has challenged me to learn more about history and culture, which I greatly enjoy."
Sukaenah was born on July 4, 1978. As a child, she loved to climb a big tree in her garden. From there she could jump onto the roof of her family's house. Her favorite rooftop spot was nicely shaded, and it soon became her personal hideout where she would go to read or study.
During her high school years, Sukaenah was very active in different school organizations as well as sporting events - she was a long-distance runner. She also joined the Paskibra, a group responsible for hanging the national flag on Indonesia's Day of Independence.
Unable to fulfill her lifelong ambition of studying at a government university, Sukaenah decided to enroll in a four-year course at a local tourism school. She majored in hotel management, and during her second year of studies she was selected to become a trainee in Singapore.
Sukaenah graduated in 2000 and took a job at an important hotel. "Here I first came into contact with traditional bronze artwork," she says. "I fell in love with it. In my eyes, these sculptures looked different, antique, and charismatic." Sukaenah searched for information on bronze sculpting, which made her appreciate this art form even more.
Encouraged by her brother-in-law, Sukaenah decided to work with bronze. Together, they began to create a variety of art works, but their favorites are characters with strong historical and religious backgrounds, such as Shiva, Krishna, and Buddha.
"Working with bronze in a historical context has challenged me to learn more about history and culture, which I greatly enjoy," the artist confides.
