We Shall 'Return'

I Wayan Andita and Rie Mandala in a Joint Exhibition at Ganesha Gallery at Four Seasons Jimbaran-Bali May 5-30, 2011.


(4/9/2011)

"After comparing respective themes in our art, we came to the realization that we are both dream chasers and that our creations were tracks and memories that mirror the ideals and cultural roots of our activities and thoughts."

- Yanik Andita and Rie Mandala

"Return"

In their joint exhibition "Return" I Wayan Andita ("Yanik") of Bali and Rie Mandala of Japan not only share their individual expressions of their respective cultural origins, but also join together on a work. It is a collaboration that began in 2001 and came into full realization a decade later.

Rie Mandala's female sensitivity is seen in her joyous and mystical approach to processing memories past, "I work in collage, with clear aims, using old cloth and paper discarded in many lands and of no value to most people."

The approach in her mixed media work "Alighting" is quite unique. She creates circular layers that she cuts one by one, applies calligraphy and then stitches colored silk threads on the surface layer. The result is both complex and exquisite. She describes the piece as "returning to the earth as connecting to a higher place." The piece took 5 months to complete.

Yanik, who is best known for his love of geometric forms, composed of intricate geometric motifs, patterns that suggest batik, calligraphy, and for creating depth in harmonious fields of color generally selects a palette of deep, rich colors that convey the intensity of his feeling as his depicts Balinese cultural roots. This technique enables Yanik to create original pieces of art. In his work "Triangle" he depicts the theme of return as an attempt to break free of the spiral of illusion - "I breathe with difficulty at seeing my feet trapped in old footprints...I return again only to begin again and over and over again."

Both Yanik and Rie prefer to work on paper which they describe as having an ancient history in many cultures. They write: "Paper demands precision of work. Errors and mistakes are impossible to correct. Paper is honest and working on it requires skill and patience that is comparable to meditation."
