COSMIC ENERGY: I WAYAN KARJA
I Wayan Karja is an artist whose life, inspiration and careers spans an exceptionally wide spectrum. Born in one of the most iconic of all traditional cultures, Bali, and in one of the most touristic of all the traditional villages, Penestanan, he, paradoxically, almost immediately became, owing to his tourist environment, a Balinese “man of the world”.
In this exhibition, we’ll see that Karja’s life and career is made of contrasts, contrasts inherent to his birthplace and now unique to him. No other Indonesian artist has faced the shift from tradition to modernity the way he did. The result is an abstract art irrigated by a ʺcosmicistʺ view of the world that is both very Balinese and very contemporary.
