The solo painting exhibition of Wayan Sujana Suklu at Komaneka Gallery, Ubud, was very unique. A showcase of creative artwork entitled “The Unseen Things’ looked to incorporate some periods of his previous work into a new art manifestation. The exhibition was opened on Sunday (Dec 9) and ended on January 9, 2013.
His expression in abstract scratches on medium was designed to result in three dimensional works. Suklu was able to immerse himself in a more interactive process with the public, so that it engendered a form of artistic collaboration.
Dozens of works of art were presented in the solo exhibition this time. The works made use of various media like ink, acrylic and charcoal on canvas. Likewise, there was also installation art using the medium of metal, paper (repro of drawing on novel) and bamboo as a representation of local Balinese culture.
Interestingly, the opening was jazzed up with an interactive performance by Agung Gunawan, a dancer from Yogyakarta. The dancer responded the installation art designed by Yokasara, a Balinese architect accompanying with video. Furthermore, the public became a part of the finishing process of the installation art of Suklu by pinning Kletekan one by one on the work made of metal material as exhibited on the second floor of the gallery.
