Silence – An Exhibition by I Made Galung Wiratmaja
Paintings by I Made Galung Wiratmaja at the Ganesha Gallery – Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran March 6 -30, 2007.
The Gianyar-based Balinese artists I Made Galung Wiratmaja will be holding a one-man show at The Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, March 6-30, 2007.
For I Made Galung Wiratmaja silence is a symbol of complete spiritual freedom. His paintings are dominated by the quest of freeing himself and his art from the 'noise' of everyday life. This urge is a form of iconoclasm and mystical quest for purity. It attempts to achieve silence by focusing on the inner self rather than exterior aesthetics.
In this way silence and minimalism merge into a radical form of beauty that evokes a sense of ecstatic immediacy that shatters stereotypes. It is the logical conclusion of the process of reduction, a transcendental self created state that rises above the limits of reality and art by eliminating everything except the very essence.
Born in Bali and educated in the Arts Faculty of Bali's Udayana University, Wiratmaja has participated a wide number of solo and group exhibitions at galleries and museums across Bali.
The exhibition "Silence" runs from March 6 through March 30 at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, daily from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m..
