This article aims to elaborate and explain the seven methods in creating contemporary paintings based on Yeh Pulu relief explorations. The methods used were carried out through the three stages of process based on the concept of Sullivan's ‘Art Practice as Research’ (2005): medium experimentation, visual language depiction and relevant context preparation. The seven methods in creating contemporary paintings were found as follows: (a) cutting (imagining that Yeh Pulu relief is like a comic poster sheet that can then be freely cut out); (b) coloring (giving colors according to the artist’s artistic intention); (c) highlighting (making a certain subject/scene/plot of the relief the center of attention); (d) smashing (collating fragments and scraps of the relief that have become scattered due to rock corrosion); (e) drawing (construction of the visual subject based on a drawing/line technique); (f) layering (layers of transparent colors as the background) and (g) deconstructing (disposition and deconstruction of the scene/plot). Those seven methods are also referred to as the aesthetic approaches to painting that are used in the creation or as a combination of several approaches. Contemporary paintings which were then produced show that Yeh Pulu visual relief is presented in contemporary multi narration; a visual artifact interpreted visually into seven ways of expression.
