Sri Astari works with painting, sculpture and other objects from the cultural treasures of Indonesia, especially Java. She raises issues of women in the social sphere, especially in relation to pressure as a result of modernisation, democratisation, globalisation and freedom in urban life. In her long career as an artist, Astari continues to question cultural constructs and stereotypes.
