(5/27/2002)

One of a handful of Indonesian women artists fully dedicated to pure abstract art, Nunung WS is holding a one-woman exhibition at the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay's Ganesha Gallery through June 21, 2002.

In an artistic career spanning four decades, Nunung WS has participated in a number of exhibitions throughout her native Indonesia as well as the U.S.A., the Netherlands, and Malaysia. She has also taught art in Indonesia and Holland.

Arguably the greatest female exponent in a style dominated by men in Indonesia, Nunung's work embodies feminine intuition and a sense of mystery that contrasts with the more technical and masculine oeuvre of her male contemporaries. Her paintings emphasize color fields rather than shapes. A large dark central field against which smaller fields of other colors contrast usually dominates them. Ringed with lighter edges these seem to "float". Numerous layers of shimmering colors create rich fields of color that can exercise a powerful emotional effect on the viewer. Using a unique technique, she mixes her pigments on the canvas rather than the palette. Nunung once said, "I like to look for the perfect colors by mixing them directly on the canvas. This way, infinite possibilities can be explored in a living process. If I mix the color in the palette beforehand and apply them afterwards the process becomes little more than a lifeless technique."

Nunung's art is obsessed with exploring the very essence and meaning of color. Her aim is to use her long experience and unusual technique to intuitively discover perfect combinations. She describes her quest as a search for the soul or spirit of pure color something she experiences as an emotional vibration. She is introspective and spiritual. Indonesian art critic Hilda Soemantri wrote of her work, "In her spiritual expedition, the dark hues reflect her contemplative mood, the large color field is her spiritual world, the sensitive lines her last personal assertion, her only link with the real world."

The Ganesha Gallery is located in Village IV of the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. For more information telephone the Gallery's Director, Ms. Maya Sujatmiko at ++62-(0)361-701010. The exhibition is open daily from 10.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m..
