Tara Kasenda Indonesian, b. 1990

Tara Kasenda (b. 1990) obtained her Bachelor's degree at the Institute of Technology Bandung, Indonesia, specializing in painting (2013) and her Master of Fine Arts degree in Transdisciplinary New Media from Paris College of Art (2019). She works with oil painting, installation, prints, sculpture, and new media – each of them depicts the spirit of her time while still rooted in the convention of painting. Through obscureness and soft pastel hues that ties her work together, she emphasizes the issue of identity, perception, and memory. The dream-like quality of her work simultaneously evokes the feeling of ambiguity, paradox, and comfort.
