'Silence' – an Exhibition by Galung Wiratmaja

Bali's Ganesha Gallery at Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay October 1 – November 1, 2007.


(9/12/2007)

Silence is an ever-increasing process of distillation and condensation: purification.

For I Made Galung Wiratmaja (born 1972), silence represents the need for extreme liberty and extreme intensity of feeling: absolute (spiritual) freedom. His paintings deal with the problem of creating essential silence in art. In this place and space he transforms the perception and understanding of different kinds of "being" by making explicit their hidden connection. Ultimately silence is here understood as an articulation of the immaterial.

The directing of art toward silence is inseparable from the understanding of art as a kind of iconoclasm. Iconoclasm is connected with the "mystique of purity," and view silence itself as purity's instrument. Deliberate silence is a major way of sustaining the elusive (spiritual) atmosphere of an artwork by ruthlessly reducing the artistic ("tasteful outer beauty") to an absolute minimum. Indeed silence attempts to eliminate beauty altogether.

Paradoxically the absolutely silent becomes the radically beautiful.

The silence evokes an ecstatic sense of immediacy, an experience of radical beauty, breaking all the habits of mediation conventionally associated with perception. The achievement of silence is the logical conclusion of the process of negation. Conclusive silence is the irreducible outcome of reductive abstraction.

For Wiratmaja, the purity of silence implies that art can free itself "from the prison of things" (i.e. the noisy sound of reality). Silence is also art's way of suggesting its transcendence of the conditions of its creation and appearing to be self-created. Finally silence transcends the limits not only of reality but those of art itself, to the point of annihilating art in attempting to realize its deepest essence.
