Abdul Aziz A Retrospective Exhibition

Painter, Sculptor, Musician and Violin Maker's Life to be Celebrated in Month-Long Retrospective Exhibition at Bali's Neka Museum in Ubud.


(11/17/2007)

Abdul Aziz A Retrospective Exhibition will open on Saturday, December 8, 2007 at Neka Art Museum, Ubud, Bali Scheduled to be opened by the Italian Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Roberto Palmeiri, who, in keeping with the U.N. Conference on Climate Change being held in Bali, will plant Abdul Aziz' favorite type of trees in the grounds of the Museum.

The beauty of Bali has inspired artists for over 100 years; they have been drawn here by the wonderful combination of a lush natural landscape, enhanced by the magnificently constructed rice fields, together with the charming character of the Balinese people. Not least of these artists was Abdul Aziz.

Born in Central Java in 1928, Abdul Aziz won a scholarship to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome from 1960 to 1965, in which time he was awarded two Diplomas in Fine Art and Graphic Design. On his return to Indonesia he chose to settle in Bali where he taught until 1982 before retiring to concentrate on his art. He created many famous paintings, including the painting of an iconic Balinese couple regarded by many as the "Mona Lisa' of Bali. That painting used Aziz's 3D technique, giving the impression of the subject stepping out from the frame.

Despite his considerable fame as a painter, Abdul Aziz never held a solo exhibition - preferring, instead, to stay home and paint, sculpt, play music, and make violins. After his death in January 2002, his widow, Mary Northmore-Aziz, spent 4 years working on his biography, which was published to critical acclaim in Nov 2005. This artist, who was already well-known to art lovers and collectors, is now becoming known to the wider public. The growing appreciation of his oeuvre prompted the decision to move ahead with the current retrospective exhibition in his honor. Many of the paintings included in the current retrospective exhibition have never before been seen by the public.

Abdul Aziz - A Retrospective Exhibition will be open from December 9. 2007 to January 13, 2008 at the Neka Art Museum in Sanggingan, Ubud.

The exhibition will be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information telephone ++62-(0)361- 975074
