Finding balance, works by Ida Bagus Putu Purwa

Amsterdam From 6 April to 8 May 2016

Gallery Lukisan

Gallery Lukisan

Amsterdam - Netherlands


Ida Bagus Putu Purwa’s (or shortly Purwa) concept of art works is his continuous search of freedom. His paintings speak about human bodies in a true search and longing for freedom, realizing that human existence or ones’ due rights was given to them since birth.

Although the subjects in the paintings sometime take different shape or posture, they are in fact an expression of himself. For this reason they are not really different subjects, but merely bodies; embodiments of the same ultimate subject, the very artist himself. His works are expression of this quest to freedom and a reflection of movements and suffering of this urge to find his dream.
