Soaring line and contemporary style bring elegance to this statuette by Wayan Rendah. Carved from richly-grained suar wood, it depicts a kiss that communicates both deep affection and passion. The artist celebrates the physical and spiritual manifestations of love in an exquisite signature piece.
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.'
