Installation art titled "The Frontiers" is the work developed in 2012 by implementing major silk batik material, stainless steel and teak. Works describe the creation of certain culture that is more than adding individual elements of the three main ethnic are China, Indonesia and Netherlands.

“Generations of Paranakans passed through different, often difficult, political situations in Indonesia. What does Peranakan and its local heritage mean in this global era in which Peranakan culture is declining?“ said Jaarsma.

“This work is about appearance and absence – What we see and experience nowadays is the material culture of the Peranakan with its specific architecture, artefacts and food. In this work I got inspired by the assimilated architecture which I found in the cities along the north coast of Java,“ said Jaarsma.

Jaarsma works in various forms such as painting, drawing, etching, sculpture, installation and performance art. For Jaarsma, shadow is reflection of the things that are material. Light itself is immaterial, so that the shadow is the boundary between the material and the immaterial.

The work titled 'High Tea' (2014) in solo exhibition at Nadi Gallery, Jakarta, describe two castes tea industry is the high tea and low tea. Historically, the tea plant life from generation to generation. Jaarsma look specifically at the cultural practices of the tea industry for centuries unjust.

“I worked with the painter Anex from Jatiwangi in West Java, a region known for its tea plantations. Anex has painted romantic ‘Mooi Indie’ style landscapes on aluminium kettles illustrating the surrounds of Jatiwangi,“ said Jaarsma.

“The romantic imagery references landscape traditions of the Colonial era whilst also alluding to the unromantic cruelties of daily life that took place during this period,“ said Jaarsma.

“The highest quality tea produced in Indonesia is not available to Indonesian people but is instead directly exported. Indonesia’s premium tealeaves are exported and served to the upper class around the world. Tea found in Indonesian supermarket however is a rougher, larger leafed, less ‘refined’ tea,“ said Jaarsma.

Born in Emmeloord, The Netherlands, in 1960 and since 1984 lived in Yogyakarta. In 1988 Jaarsma and Nindityo Adipurnomo establish Cemeti Art House who are taking the role as a showroom, information center, documentation and art promotion. In 1995 they founded the Indonesian Visual Art Archive (IVAA).
