Widely seen as one of Indonesia's up and coming young painters, Nyoman Sujana, also known as "Kenyem," continues to explore the expression of his substantial talent in his current one-man exhibition at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran, Bali.
Within Moving Shadows
A graduate of Bali's Indonesian College of Art (ISI), Kenyem's latest work focuses on the world of shadows, depicting totem-like figures, some inviting some dark and ominous in their countenance. Not unlike the shadow-puppet plays that are familiar to every village child in Bali, Kenyem's figures inhabit an awesome supernatural world of spirits and ancestors.
In Kenyem's current collection the shadow puppet master or dalang has been supplanted by the painter, a master manipulator of reality and emotions.
Within Moving Shadow – an exhibition by Nyoman Sujana runs from its opening on the evening of August 31, 2004, until September 23, 2004, at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran, Bali.
