About the artist Wayan Suastama.
‘Bisikan Pada Awan’ translates as ‘Whispers to the Clouds’ is a new work by Wayan Suastama. Since 1995 he has exhibited his works in joint and solo exhibitions, both at home and abroad. Suastamas’ works often feature female figures, a wide range of colours and textures, as a symbol of the regenerative and creative force. His new series which includes ‘Whispers to the Clouds,’ explores in detail the philosophical theme of ‘upstream and downstream’ in our relationship to the balance in Nature.
“In the quiet, these are the moments we can reflect. As a person who loves nature, I think of these whispers in Nature. When there is a change in the seasons.. the clouds still are messengers.. without language or words the clouds are messengers of nature that tell us that it is going to rain. The World Without Sound is perhaps where we see Nature’s language more clearly. It brings us back to our true selves.
World Without sound exhibition includes an anthology of art and personal reflections on a world without sound.
