Catalogue Note

"... Mahendra Yasa is presenting a type of self-portrait
that negates the tradition of self portraiture in general; and in a contradictory way, actually revitalizes it. And that is why Mahendra Yasa's current paintings have the internal power to keep moving, in search of various possibilities of change and difference that can be conceptually achieved by the contemporary art of painting, after the practice of painting has been accepted for so long and has continued to keep going until today."
