Here is an art exhibition entitled Paper Note presented at the Santrian Gallery at Sanur for one and a half months (Apr 26-Jun 6). This joint exhibition presents three artists namely Made Kaek, Made Somadita and Wayan Linggih showing off a total of 39 works of art on paper medium.In the exhibition, they attempt to play again, record and create something on paper. Of course there is a possibility that their works on paper are the results of a variety of experimental studies by using watercolor, charcoal, ink, pens and pencils. Similarly, they also feature wild images of the space and natural response of real inspiration. Each of their works would like to involve the wider public to establish communication in the exhibition with the entire aesthetic on paper medium. Made Kaek draws a figure on canvas dominated by lines. The shapes he would like to realize is naïve and distorted as well as they are made in one or two breaths.
All the matters imagined in his dreams are the total expression of lines without reserve. His sketches are so free, wild and honest. Sometimes the sketches come up clearly, while sometimes the others only offer visual ideas such as straight, circular, curved, and colored drawing using some lines.
Made Somadita expresses imaginative visuals. Figures of animals, humans, nature and implicit objects in his ideas are often unconventional. When examined, his works show off the achievement of mastery of watercolor with significant movement. And this time, he exhibits the works made of watercolors belonging to the most cutting-edge ones and are entirely on paper.
Meanwhile, Wayan Linggih utilizes richer materials. He does not only play with watercolor, but also with acrylic and ink materials. In addition, his tendency gets focused on his current works are more contextual to the surrounding of face. If Kaek focuses on free lines, Somadita focuses on the subject matter of nature, while Linggih plays lineament.
Face is an ‘ultimate representation’ of human figure and he apparently would like to highlight this aspect. Various faces he visualize on the works at this time become something like ‘paper note’ about the past, a number of events and description of a particular expression or reminder to someone. (BTN/015)
