Astral Projection

Exhibition by Bambang Wibawarta at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay


(3/9/2012)

Since prehistoric time, the circle has held a significant meaning that symbolizes the cycle of life and death, and the eternal soul.

Bambang Wibawarta is both a talented artist and a noted scholar serving as the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Indonesia.

His is the spontaneous outgrowth of his education that combined the mystical heritage of his place of birth in Java, and that of another great island where he studied for many years, Japan.

Suspended between these two worlds, he realized that visual communication was a perfect non-verbal extension of his mind merging intellect with intuition.

Through his art he seeks a three-way dialogue between his inner self, the greater universe and art lovers.

During the last few years he has become particularly fascinated with celestial orbs, especially the sun that he has refers to as the “Magic Circle.”

In Japan such circles are referred to as “enso” and play an important role in the art of Zen Buddhism.

In “Astral Projections” Bambang juxtaposes celestial orbs with human bodies. The latter are often only outlines of nude figures in dream-like states.

The question that remains is whether the magic circles are astral projections of the dreamer or the figures projections of the orbs?

The dichotomy reminds us of the “Dream of the Butterfly” - a 2400 year-old poem penned by the Chinese Taoist philosopher Zhuangxi. The poem begins with Zhuangxi telling of a dream in which he is a butterfly, only to awaken and question whether or not he is, in fact, a butterfly dreaming he is a man.

To Bambang Wibawarta it is all a matter of perspective.
