Talking about Antonius Kho is dealing with the theme of identity: are we one, or are we split in multiple facets? Are we masks, and do these masks hide, or reveal reality? Do we communicate are not? Let us enjoy this newfound simplicity the flowering of a long, deep-rooted quest.
What Antonius “discovery” of wood enables him to do is to more fully explore the themes that haunt him: love – and hence the basic hermaphrodite or dual nature of men and women’s feeling of love; fertility and the quest for the real nature of the self.
A glance suffices to disclose the artist’s intent. Antonius Kho has found a way to the heart through simple themes. The work of an artist who has thoroughly studied the principles of classic sculptural ideas and concerns.
Up to these days, Antonius Kho stays loyal with that method, but there are others who tries to play around with this. Antonius then realizes the importance of narration following his artworks. It is then no surprise, that he have chosen various media to emphasize his narration. He does not only deal with works on canvas, but also 3D objects. Not only flat surface that he works on, but also flat layered surface, with several points of view. Even he had ‘crossed over’ the limitations, and doubted unity. Icon then presented in this free game.
