Sakti’s figurative images comprise familiar motifs but they do not represent a familiar reality - rather, his work depicts an almost surreal expression. For, he paints no images distilled out of his direct experience of neither observed reality nor its equivalent, metaphorical or otherwise, distorted restructured. …... As he himself says: Very often there are a few motifs which appear in my work everything, I am living with.
