(2/28/2006)

There was music, song, art and a breathtaking view of a Balinese valley. Such was the setting for the gala soirée launching of the book "Abdul Aziz: The Artist and his Art" held at Ubud's Indus Restaurant on Saturday, November 26, 2005.

Clearly a scene that would have warmed the great heart of the man memorialized in the book skillfully written and compiled by the Artist's wife, Mary Northmore-Aziz, the publication launch included an address by H.E. Charles Humfrey CMG, the Ambassador of Great Britain to Indonesia; comments by Nyoman Suteja Neka of the Neka Art Museum,; a brief musical recital by a local string youth orchestra; rare film footage from Aziz's life in Bali, and a solo performance on a precious violin hand-crafted by the late artist.

Abdul Aziz, who died in Denpasar on January 22, 2002, was truly a renaissance man of many parts, coming to painting only after completing a degree in political science, and then studying at Italy's Academia di Belle Art in Rome from 1960-1965. Thinker, artist, sculptor, musician, and the maker of fine musical instruments - Abdul Aziz's painting ”Mutual Attraction (shown on balidiscovery.com), has achieved iconic status among Bali's pantheon of legendary paintings and is part of the largest public exhibition of Aziz's works on permanent display at the Neka Art Museum in Ubud.

A complete obituary detauling the life of Abdul Aziz can be found on balidiscovery.com: [ Abdul Aziz : 1928 - 2002]

Abdul Aziz: The Artist and his Art

The 240-page book containing hundreds of image of the artists’ paintings, sketches, and statues is published by the Mariz Foundation of Bali and was compiled by the artist's wife, Mary Northmore-Aziz, after conducting nearly three years of painstaking interviews and research with her husband’s acquaintances and those who collect his work.



Shown on balidiscovery.com is a photograph of Mary Northmore-Aziz autographing a volume of the book.

Mary, is the founder and Director of the Seniwati Gallery of Art by Women in Ubud. The Gallery, cited by Time Magazine in September of 2005 as a “gem of a gallery,” is the only gallery in Bali dedicated solely to the presentation and promotion of art by women artists on Bali.
