Two artists namely Dewa Purwita and Nyoman Wijaya organized a joint exhibition in the Denpasar Art Space. They presented the results of their cultural heritage interpretations of two coastal areas of Bali, namely Sanur in Southern Bali and Tejakula in Northern Bali having previously become their esthetic exploration object.

The exhibition entitled ‘Laku Sisi Segara’ meaning ‘the creativity on the coastline’ features approximately 35 works of various sizes. The medium in use is pencil on paper, soft pastel on paper and oil paint on canvas, especially for colored painting. The exhibition takes place for two months, namely October 27 to December 26, 2017.

Although each artist has something in common, their idea of ​​interpreting cultural heritage remains through the choice of different visual language. It concerns technical choices, medium, way of expression and way of presentation to the contents that try to present the cultural heritage itself.

Curatorial notes by I Wayan Sriyoga Parta and I Made Susanta Dwitanaya mention the method of materialization of the works and presentation used by both artists are different but it is linked by one technique namely drawing. Drawing in the contemporary art is certainly one of the technical options that are always interesting to be questioned. In modern art, drawing is often interpreted as a work of design or the work of studies related to the process of painting creation. Thus, the presence of drawing works in contemporary art is interpreted more broadly.

Drawing is no longer a work of study, but drawing is a final work with equal value to painting. In the contemporary art, the hierarchy of technique and medium has been so liquid even collapsed in the transcendental paradigm of the art. Then, the size of the works of each artist is also very diverse ranging from the 21 X 30 cm to 55 X 75 cm.
