Grey lines is an art exchange experience combining drawings from dance, emotions and life, made by Noella Roos together with a dance, video performing by Ida Ayu Indah Tejapratami

Noella Roos, born in 1969 in Amsterdam, is a Dutch artist. Born into a family of artists, her talent was nourished and stimulated from early childhood. In this artistic environment, Noella was given every opportunity to develop her artistic qualities. As a result, her paintings and drawings betray a classical and technical competency that is seldom found in the current generation of artists

As a result, her drawings are inspired by Michelangelo, Käthe Kollwitz, Andrea del Sarto and Dooijenwaard.

Noella lets dancers dance to music in her studio in Bali while she draws them in motion with compressed chalk on white paper. She prefers chalk because it is, to her view, an ‘honest’ medium; the resulting drawings are either good or bad - you cannot change or erase parts. When she works, the movement of the body inspires Noella. ”Everyone has their own ‘language’ when they dance, influenced and shaped by cultural backgrounds, but primarily it is an expression of the emotional involvement with the music”.

Her fascination for moving figures eventually led to the development of a technique that convincingly captures movement, Her interest is focused on the muscle movements and on the light that reflects on the moving body. She continues drawing a dancing model until she can fully fathom the movement of the model. That is why Noella prefers to work with only one dancer for a long period. In the end, she and the model become as one. At the same time , her drawings follows the rhythm of the dance. Then, it is no longer a matter of hard work as thinking and doing have merged together.

At the current exhibition, drawings depicting modern dancers from Europe and drawings of a beautiful traditional Balinese dancer, Dayu Indah from Peliatan, will be exhibited. The Balinese dancer, however, dances to modern music from Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt. Noella Roos tells of how she is amazed to see a traditional Legong dancer perform to contemporary music. An accomplished dancer can dance out of feelings and emotions with the music, regardless of whether the dancer is from Indonesia or Europe.

Noella Roos draws inspiration from traditional Balinese dance because of its use of architectonic lines. Balinese dance has a lot of Golden Mean ratios in its composition, as in architecture. This Golden Mean, also known the Divine Proportion, is evident everywhere in the works of Noella Roos and is also similar to the proportions of the Balinese cosmos guarded by equations of scale that set out lengths, breadths and widths relative to the human body measurements.

Balinese dance is sometimes accused of being ‘sweet’. However, most of the dances drawn by Noella are strong and expressive. She likes to make drawings where she visualizes the expressions from the dance, and not necessarily the character or pose of the dancing girl or boy. Noella draws dancers as dancing lines and does not draw the traditional costumes. This, she says, attracts too much attention away from the emotions and expression of the dance itself.

Noella Roos tries to capture that one moment of sublime connection between the dancer, the artist and the music. Only that sublime one moment capture in time can result in a satisfying drawing. Her lines are free open, grey, not too black. Drawing for her is akin to joining the dancer in order to obtains a better understanding of dance in Bali.

The artistic connections between Asia and Europe are as old as history. Noella Roos, with her respect for classical education, both from the West as well as of the East, manages to visualize traditional Asian dance in a modern way.
