The most proper description technically to describe Balinese painting is that it is an art of coloring. Extremely varied, it ranges from the flat, simple contour coloring of the Young Artists' school to the sophisticated wash technique of the school of Batuan, but it rests everywhere on similar principles: there is a graphic contour which delineates the field of application of colors, 'isolating' them one from the other while allowing a play of harmony and/or contrast between the hues kept within the contour field.

Abstract Empathies

 

SYAHRIZAL ZAIN KOTO (1960)

 

Art Exhibition in The Oberoi Hotel, Bali.
From 07 June to 10 July, 2017.

 

Syahrizal

 

There is a special way to look at abstract works and, here, at Syahrizal works.

As the eyes follow the color up to its ill-defined boundary, one must not ask any questions. One must not because the ‘ill-defined’ here does not indeed require definition. It follows its own logic, the logic of the ‘feel.’ The artist's invites us, color field after color field, nuance after nuance, to converse in a language that is spoken, not in words, but in a poetic blend of colors, surfaces and lines—some real, others simply suggested by the magic of the visual mood.

Ethical Feelings

Lately, the government's development in several regions in Indonesia has attracted protests from the public. Why? This is related to the problem of the ecological impact of the area in which it arises. The destruction of the environment and the interests of large industries is a scourge for the people, the pros and cons should be taken seriously. Globalization is overwhelming the local cultural heritage.

Who is Ketut Budiana? To a certain extent, he can be construed as the traditional artist par excellence. He was born (1950) and grew up in Padangtegal, Ubud, the birthplace too of some of the most famous artists from the Pita Maha school. Indeed, his cultural memory, shaped in the days prior to the introduction of television, is still that of the dance and theatre world of Bali.

Murtika Tubuh

 

Batuan school was part of the Pita Maha movement. Its artists quickly adopted Chinese ink and the use of paper, yet its artists kept free from much of the formal stylistic influence that pervaded the artists from the Ubud area, where Bonnet's "anatomism" left to this day deep traces. In Batuan developed instead a rich, dense use of Chinese ink in washes, layered to create an atmosphere of dark shades off white highlights.

The important question that still becomes a debate along the history of thought and art and technology is where the position of photography is? Since it was invented in 1839 by Niépce, within few years photography entered the Dutch Indies in 1841. Photography expand to Center of Java with a main purpose, “To compile the representation of photographic of various important landscape, plants, and others object of nature,” Frietag wrote.

Antonius Kho

 

"Remembering"

 

At The Oberoi Hotel, Bali

From 08 November to 08 December, 2016.

 

Antonius Kho

 

Antonius Kho was born a “Chinese-Indonesian” in Klaten, a small town of central Java, an “alien”, to a point, in his land. To him, when he was child, the Wayang, Batik and other images of the Javanese world came piecemeal through the jumble and rumble of the life of the streets. As references rather than living symbols and carriers of meaning. Meaning was with Buddha and the Tao wisdom. It was the candle put to burn with incense in front of the family shrine. And like the candle it too was withering, as withered all the Chinese mores and customs. Antonius Kho’s real tradition, thus, was essentially a mosaic of beliefs and visual symbols: the paradoxes roots of a modernity.

Oototol  (Ca. 1943 - 2012)

 

At the Oberoi Hotel, Bali.

 Oototol low

 

 

Oototol was born ca.1943 during the Japanese occupation in the village of Pengosekan, to the South of the famous Ubud. He never went to school, both because his parents could not afford it and because he was somehow “different” from his village peers.

He did not fit, nowhere, behaved as if being the host of some “outside” forces –what the Balinese call bebainan– and reacted in strange, compulsive-obsessive ways, that soon had him turn into the village fool. He came of age during the heydays of Indonesian nationalism, when Sukarno’s speeches, heard on radio, were turning crazy crowds in the smallest Indonesian villages.

Rejang Dancers

 

The Rejang dance is a ritual of the Balinese community, performed in temples as a sacred offering to gods.

It is a presentation to welcome and entertain the gods coming down from heaven to earth. During the temple ceremony, gods are invited through mantra and puja to come down from heaven, and then abide in the sacred objects like Pratima or effigy.

Rejang dances, especially in Karangasem, eastern of Bali region, are performed by female dancers usually around a holy place or shrine, where the effigies are placed. The Rejang dancers have many combination clothes and crowns, there are about more than 50 types in the Karangasem Region.
