The Tree House, original painting by Delo, 2021.
In “The Tree House”, trees remain the subject matter interacting with birds. There, birds represent the many living things that need trees to survive. This piece hopes to make the public aware that trees are not only important for humans but also for other creatures. And hopefully by realizing that, achieve a growing harmonisation with nature that will be maintained.
I Made Budiarta (Delo) is a second generation framer, graduate of Seni Rupa (Fine Arts) and is an established painter and sculptor/carver. Both the artists’ sculptural and painterly works remain true to a raw and honest expression of the artists’ deep respect and love for his culture and the Earth. It is with this deep respect that he poses the questions we sense in his works. They pose questions on the changes he sees affecting traditional life.
