Bayu Ngunda at Gallery Santrian

Bayu Ngunda at Gallery SantrianA pile of wood after given a touch of artistic creativity can engender an object having a great value. Various unique wood sculptures created by I Ketut Muja are now being displayed in Griya Santrian Gallery on Jalan Danau Tamblingan 57, Sanur. The exhibition entitled Ngunda Bayu takes place for two months starting from February 1 to April 1, 2013.There are about 20 sculptures on display in the gallery. All the works have different characteristics and styles. They are ranging from mystical realism to abstract style. “I showcase the sculptures made since 2000 and they have different sizes,” said Ketut Muja.

As a matter of fact, I Ketut Muja is a true artist having a wealth of experience in the world of sculpture both in national and international level. The artist born at Mukti hamlet on December 31, 1944 remains productive to work up to these days. “I exhibit the sculptures made of agar wood with a hard texture so that it is more challenging,” he said.

Indeed, in the process of creativity, Muja does not distinguish the wood he carved. He tends to consider the aesthetic aspect of the woodworks. “Agar wood is indeed different. It has aesthetic and special value, blackish in color and contains a typical resin produced by some species of the genus like the Aquilaria tree, especially the A. malaccensis,” said the artist from Mukti hamlet, Singapadu, Gianyar.

Muja who has ever attended workshops in Germany and Spain and made an exhibition in Singapore and Spain said the agar wood had sometimes brought out unique textures, so that it was easy to find the creative ideas desired. “Agar wood is very appropriate with my works because the wood has a lot of elements where I get freedom to explore,” said the artist who just graduated from primary school.
