Wandering Ripples

Solo Exhibition by Rie Mandala in Ubud August 28 - September 27, 2009.


Life is a collage for artist Rie Mandala. From her native Japan, across Asia, to Canada and the U.S.A., Rie has lived, traveled and exhibited across the globe, absorbing and observing a mélange of cultures along the way. "Wandering Ripples" her latest exhibition is a collection of some 20 works of art, documenting this world-wide search of self-discovery.

While studying design at Okinawa University in Japan, Rie came to the realization that, in order to go beyond design and follow the evolving creative process, she needed to go on a journey. She then left the land of her birth, becoming a nomadic artists that, early in her travels brought her to Ubud in Bali, and ignited an enduring love for Indonesia.

In ‘Wandering Ripples,' this talented artist explores the many doors she has passed through, mixing new cultures with her own and concentrating the elements with pure water. "How I open these doors and appreciate the worlds within is stamped directly on the art pieces which are created with found materials from each ripple," she explains.

Rie's main medium is collage, using paper and materials she collects on her travels, particularly printed matter. This is a conscious effort on her part to recycle discarded items, creating something new from old. While Rie adopts a methodical and logical approach to the choice in positioning and consideration of the expressive quality of objects, her collaborations with foreign artists have given her a deeper understanding of foreign cultures. This process of assimilations is uniquely expressed in her artistic process.

Working with her hands and expressing her empiricism of many foreign countries translates into colorful and richly textured compositions infused with the innate spirit of her homeland.
