"Interested in the models of gestural abstraction and the control-uncontrolled dialectics in Pollock's works, Hendra has tried to trace the footprints of the artistic sensibility and subjectivity through the main artifacts already established as one among the icons of freedom and progress in modernist art. Hendra's approach, adopting the realist painting techniques in reading while "parodying" or "stripping off" the subjectivity of those works, expands the possibility to explore the language of "non-subject" in painting. In his works, anything that has the image of being uncontrolled in Pollock's works becomes observable objects or corpus, and the unconscious condition as suggested in Pollock's works becomes something fully intentional and designed in Hendra's. In other words, Hendra creates an antithesis to Pollock's modernist art out of its own traces."
HENDRO WIYANTO CITED IN Gede Mahendra Yasa, Hendra Membaca Pollock, EXH. CAT., EMMITAN GALLERY, SURABAYA, 2007, P. 11

This dual nature is emphasized further in the title of the present work, Castor-Pollux, which is derived from characters in Greek mythology of the same name, who are twins borne of the same mother but different fathers. Pollux was sired by Zeus while Castor was sired by the mortal Tyndareus. As a result Pollux was immortal while Castor was mortal. Through this visual discourse, Hendra provocatively discusses appropriation in the context of immortalizing artistic concepts.
