Installation + Drawing Made Wianta
July 23rd till Aug 15th 2004
Solo Exhibition by Made Wianta
Gaya Gallery, the leading contemporary art space in Bali, presents a one-man show by the universal Balinese artist Made Wianta entitled Installation + Drawing. The opening will held on Friday July 23rd 2004 at 7 pm, located at Gaya Fusion of Senses, Jalan Raya Sayan Ubud Bali.
In the formal terms, Wianta's drawings clearly reflect a search of form or shape representation, whether it comes from something basic or original in the visual world, as a modern artist with a very intense adventure presents. This is probably the unreal imagination on the real world 'shape' or something seen around us, it can be living beings, objects, things, as well as unreal visual items. We can also observe the unseen form adventures, or the unreal or spiritual in his drawings. That is the 'greget', an urge to create in an abstract manner on a two-dimensional drawing space, desire, non-objective energy that works in the distortion of creatures, and everything else that he draws. However, looking through the drawings he has done, it is clear that Wianta's concern on the real and the unreal is a certain constant to and fro wave, which believed that his representational or pictorial drawings uncertainly transformed absolutely into a progress based on spirituality in the modernism which is a flatness, where unknown forms are atomized and made picturesque.
