Performing a dance of love, this image of a woman seduces with abstract charm. Her posture is akin to a traditional Balinese dance while she forms heart figures with her posturing arms. Wayan Rendah carves this statuette with a flowing sense of aesthetic grace. Suar wood complies with the dictates of the master carver, resulting in an engaging piece of dynamic abstraction.
About the Artist: Wayan Rendah's father began teaching him to sculpt when he was a boy. 'Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation,' he says. 'After I finished school, I studied further because I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings.'
