‘Trying to Hum’ part of Drifting Creatures Series. Article Excerpt
“When I think of Kaprus Jaya’s Drifting Creatures, I feel something a little more profoundly. The artist process is the same here as in his abstract paintings. He is not insisting his will on how something should be. He is looking to see what is already there. To uncover a part of Nature that is real and present but still unseen. The marriage between the hand of the artist and the raw force of energy that he senses in his world is at the core of Kaprus Jaya’s art. It is perhaps even more evident in Drifting Creatures.”
In particular in ‘Trying to Hum’ the natural shape of the driftwood has given form to this beautiful, gliding creature. That brings to mind a bird not in flight, but even as the artist states,.. like a creature gliding along the ice. Through the title which Kaprus has given, there is then the added dimension of melody. A gliding song.
