Pertiwi by Nyoman Handi, Sawidji Gallery. Original Artwork, mixed media by contemporary artist Nyoman Handi.

Pertiwi is a remarkable work, the artists’ unique raw and vibrant style layered and fused with the driftwood pieces assembled into a painting that breathes its character with the natural elements as a canvas. The texture of the wood and Handi’s style meld together beautifully in the delivery of this message. A message to us, in a visual letter full of symbolism and contrasts. The colours and innocence of Handis’ visual language, in partnership with the age tangible in the wood textures. A masterpiece that succeeds in speaking to us on many sensory levels.

‘Pertiwi’ means Earth. Earth gives us many things. Give us life. From the mountains, the water flows from the upper reaches to the rivers and the sea. But in our forests in the mountains, there is deforestation and many natural disasters. Whatever humans do and give to nature, we will receive the same as our actions. It is a natural balance. Human actions are what cave paintings and murals depict. The ladder shows the way to human success. The movement of the human body is happiness that can be seen when they dance.

Nyoman Handi is part of Sawidji Gallery and Artist Collective. Learn more about the artist Nyoman Handi.
