If you've seen only one exhibition by the talented young Balinese artist Nyoman Sujana (Kenyem) it's safe to conclude that you most definitely have not seen all his considerable talents have to offer.

Bold and imaginative, Kenyem uses each new exhibition to bring us along on the next installment on a very special journey of discovery. Amazed and enchanted by the world around him, attending a Kenyem show is like witnessing a small child discover a new aspect of the world about us for the first time and, through these eyes, perhaps experiencing on a new level what we have seen for years but till now failed to truly take in.

An Abstraction of Leaves

In his latest exhibition, Kenyem uses leaves to explore both reality and imagination. On canvas Kenyem employs leaves to explore movement, color, space, light and emotion. Balinese to his very core and seeing man, nature and God as interdependent parts of a common whole, Kenyem's anthropomorphous approach to objects, on its most basic level, manages to "personify" all of nature - the essence of the Balinese view of man and nature.

Born in 1972 in Sayan, Bali, Kenyem trained as an artist at the Young Artists Community in nearby Penestanan. Shifting to abstract express in 1992, Kenyem continued his studies at the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) in Denpasar. After graduating in 1998, he has exhibited extensively in the region and won numerous awards.

Nyoman Sujaana – Kenyem – Abstraction of Leaves will be on show daily at the Jenggala Art Gallery in Jimbaran from October 15 through December 15, 2005.
