Understanding someone’s character can be effortless through their reflections. Their words, attire, and how they perceive the world reflect their unique pamor.
When speaking of pamor, we recall the traditional Javanese Keris, a weapon forged by Empu Keris, resulting in natural patterns known as pamor.
Great artists are renowned not only for their artistic quality but also for their personal integrity. Their creations stem from reflections on observed phenomena and lived experiences.
Curator A. Anzieb believes that, like a Keris forged persistently at high temperatures, the pamor formed has its unique patterns. Some people are naturally artistic, yet these talents require honing through life’s dynamics. The more intense the struggles experienced, the stronger the personal character, and the higher the quality of their work.
Throughout his career, Nasirun, a respected artist, expresses his unique character through his art. There is no restlessness when he creates; there is only love and synergy with his surroundings.
Regardless, Nasirun’s creations are never detached from inspiring and moving life stories. He believes that human character needs to synergize with nature, and the results of this synergy will never cease to be explored.
“What we see, feel, and delve into cannot be separated from what nature provides us.” Hanafi K. Sidharta contemplates.
Pamor is not far from humanity as we progress and move forward with nature. It illuminates and provides life to us and truly the ultimate teacher for humans as every artistic creation is an amalgamation of human imagination and materials provided by nature.
Every artistic creation is a fusion of human imagination and materials provided by nature, synergizing to create magnificent works of art. Pamor itself is the result of the efforts of those who create these works, as showcased by each collaboratively featured artwork in Vherkudara Spirit.
Collaborating young artists Hanafi K. Sidharta, Antino Restu Aji, Sweet Arens, and Techoo display their unique pamor in each of their works. Like two sides of a coin, every piece is a reflection and synergy of their character, experiences, and harmonization with nature.
The manifestation of soul and pamor in Vherkudara Spirit
More than just an offline store, we have created an art gallery concept store, inspired by and showcasing works of art from the collaborating artists including Nasirun. This approach allows us to connect with our people more closely, while also providing them with a new and meaningful experience.
We believe in integrating art into more aspects of life, extending beyond galleries and institutions. Our main goal is to create an environment where people can interact and deeply connect with the meaning and stories behind each collection of Vherkudara, allowing them to choose glasses that resonate with their energy and character.
Inspired by pamor, this store embodies the character of our audience. Their character is a significant factor in shaping Vherkudara’s identity; as we evolve and progress together, Vherkudara is forged, acquiring its distinct pamor or character.
This will lead to conversations and new experiences that extend beyond traditional expectations of human character.
