PUNCHING THE DEVIL

A solo exhibition by Rodney Glick

September 5th – September 30th, 2009

With these latest sculptures from his ongoing Everyone series, Rodney Glick – an Australian artist – presents us with a strange and intriguing cultural mix. The works are loosely based on Indian Hindu paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Glick has staged certain scenarios depicted in these paintings using Australian models, and these scenarios have then been photographed and digitally altered. The resulting manipulated images are exhibited as framed digital prints in their own right. These composite images also serve as source material for the Balinese woodcarvers and painters, who have created these sculptures, with Glick providing direction and making the artistic decisions.

Through this work we feel we are in the presence of something significant. Non-Hindus are surprised to discover that Hindu gods and goddesses, while being divine, also manifest the fears, doubts and other psychological states that constitute our own characters. Though there is a strangeness about these works and an element of humour that comes from the surprising juxtaposition of ancient Hindu subject matter with contemporary models there is certainly no intention to mock or make fun of an ancient belief system. Rather, something universal is implied.

These sculptures, and the other works from the Everyone series, seduce us through the fineness of their form and the skill of their making; they intrigue us because of the mix of ancient and modern, religious and secular, Eastern and Western; and finally invite us to confront deep and basic states of mind that we all experience but that we might prefer to leave concealed. And we might find some comfort in knowing that the states of mind we share with the rest of humanity we also share with the gods.

This is an ongoing project engaging individuals, cultures and beliefs from around the world.

COLOUR WINDOWS

A solo exhibition by Peter Dittmar

July 31 - August 30, 2009

The great pioneers of abstraction of the early 20th century were enthralled by philosophical and mystical concerns. Abstraction was the visual formulation of a spiritual quest, and it is in this same vein that Peter Dittmar’s believes in; he evokes Hindu-Buddhist cosmological symbols.

Dittmar’s latest artworks arrive at a different phase of the quest. The simplicity Peter Dittmar achieves here is more complex than it appears. It is an achieved form of learning and meditation.

His current abstract geometric paintings symbolize the encounter of the beholder with the absolute stillness of the Void. Peter Dittmar says he following the “Golden Section”, also known as “Divine Proportions”, combined with a sophisticated play of tonal coloration that takes us ever deeper into the ultimate Stillness/Void.

Peter Dittmar, a respected artist in his country of origin, Germany, and in Australia as well as in Bali, where he spends half of his time since 1982, shows us that abstraction is indeed alive and well. Nourished by the sources of both Eastern cosmic philosophy and Western knowledge, he enables one to forget both form and colour as we behold, giving us the chance blending ourselves into the Void and Stillness of the cosmic OM.

SANCTUM SHIFTING

A Solo Exhibition by Hillary Kane at Gaya Art Space

May 09th-June 09th, 2009

Begins her work with an initial sketch?maybe from observation, from a photograph, something working out proportions or variations on one simple theme.

She tends to fall back upon drawing as the foundation of her brainstorming?the architecture of a piece, even if it is entirely obliterated or abandoned later on. One time a friend asked her of her pottery: ?do you draw what you make, or make what you draw?? Interestingly, she would say the latter to be more true, although it really begins to circle round and round, and sometimes the beginning has very little to do with the end.

The simultaneous choreography of creation and destruction: a fa?ade of paint or clay cracking, warping, revealing the tender underlayer; a Fa?ade as such: posing as something stalwart and solid, then crumbling under a pressure from within?or a Graffiti from without and the rather ironic beauty in this deterioration?this dissimulation of typically appreciable ?art? work. The Sanctum is at once her own quiet, sacred space of inner monologue and reflection on identity?who she is, where she comes from, how she define herself, how she is perceived, defined, confined by the world, where her place is, nomad of no place, self-asylum, ever-moving? and then, sanctum as the sacred spaces of this world, places of calm and peacefulness shifting with the ever=growing fervent tides of political exasperation, tension, imminent disaster? Her commentary on all that is visual, abstract, not specific, readable, breathable, transmutable, full of possibility and nothing concrete.

?Please Remove Shoes before Entering??an interactive installation designed to incite the participation of audience by way of physical trace: the literal footprint we leave on others? lives. Additionally, the illustration of the sumptuous sensuality of clay, oozing between toes, the random pathways of process, and the role of time (as the clay goes from soft and malleable, to hard, cracking, dry, and then fired as a physical remnant, marker of a moment), and finally, an totem of observation: when what isn?t suppose to happen happens.

GAYA ART SPACE

Foot Bridge: Building Bridges thru ART ?09 Bali is an exhibition featuring artists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China and Korea, representing mainland Asia forging a relationship using art an a non vocal medium to build bridges to Indonesia. The artists strongly believe that by using ART as a medium to reveals one?s culture and idea to communicate with the audiences is still valid considering it a conventional approach originated from the man until present day. Therefore as a group with diverse background and approaches towards visualizing ideas on canvasses they also believe that Art does its own magic in connecting people. The group extends their heartfelt gratitude to parties involved for their tireless effort and assistance in materializing this exhibition at Gaya Art Space.

The fifteen artists ; Antonius Kho, Achmad Soepandi, Anas Etan (Indonesia), Lui Qi, Wang Hua Xiang, Xiang Qing Ren, Zhang Haizhou (China), Helen Kim (Korea), Abdul Rani Majid, Chong Hip Seng, Dr M. Najib A. Dawa (Malaysia) and Thanakorn SILA Boonrat, Muhamad Rajana-Udomsat, Satawat Chuaynum (Thailand) gathered here in Bali with multiple colors of expression which is an assemblage of ideas translated into ART is what on offer at this exhibition.

Foot Bridge is a series of exhibition started in 2002 in Mauritius, 2003 in Penang Malaysia, 2004 Mauritius, 2006 in Hat Yai Thailand and 2007 Alliance Francaise Kuala Lumpur played host. Foot Bridge as a theme is an idea mooted by Said from Mauritius to forge relationship between Mauritius and Malaysia and it is further extended to Thailand and China. To this year 2009 the idea and spirit of forging relationship is further extended to Indonesia. The members of the group to date still believe and live with the idea that ART: transcend boundaries, transcend race, transcend languages, transcend cultures for the sole purpose to foster friendship among people. Therefore ART as an element used function as a medium to communicate and transmit the messages of the participating artist to the audiences in hope of Building Bridges.
