Fly with Me!

Paintings and Handpainted Ceramics by Anne Van Borselen November 14th, 2008 - January 16th, 2009.


The Indonesian-born Dutch artist Anne Van Boselen makes a triumphal return to the Jenggala Gallery with her latest exhibition of paintings and ceramics - "Fly with Me."

Van Boselen views freedom as the fundamental state for all humans, born of an inalienable personal willpower. Where a mind is free, it is unbound by physical limitations.

Visual arts are works of the imagination. Anne Van Borselen's imagination derives its inspiration from her surroundings; people and faces she encounters; and the songs she hears. Stored in her memory and mixed in an amalgam acquired over a lifetime her active imagination eventually gains expression on canvas or clay.

Anne's art skills and techniques, honed by passionate practice since she was five, and subsequent study at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and Rotterdam have resulted in a body of work prized in leading galleries and private collections around the world.

On canvas, Anne Van Borselen opts for soft colors, playing compulsively with abstract faces and figures. Faces seem on the streets stays in her mind to emerge later in her art. "The Frog King," for example, was inspired by the facial expressions of a Balinese Frog Dancer. The dancer's astonished twinkle of his big round eyes comes out on the painting as well as when represented on ceramic pieces. So strong is the impression of certain object and events encountered by Borselen that they can reappear in three or four artworks. The face of a woman that featured in "A Silent Way," emerges again in "A Bird Claimed Freedom," "Sun at Midnight," and "Golden Wings." According to Anne, abstract faces and figures give the audience freedom of interpretation. "It's up to them to find which painting that really 'talks' to them about any story," she says.

In "Fly with Me," Anne Van Borselen chooses wings to highlight the spirit she wants to hold during a two-month exhibition. The wings, rendered in ceramics as well as of glass, are collaborative artworks between Jenggala craftspeople and Anne Van Borselen.

"Fly with Me" Ė a journey of the imagination of Anne Van Borselen on exhibit daily at the Jenggala Gallery in Jimbaran, Bali from November 14th, 2008 - January 16th, 2009.
