Opening Reception: Saturday, April 15, 2pm-5pm

Improvisationalism is the work of Rockland artist, Gde Arsa Artha, inspired by his homeland of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. His paintings play off of nature, mythology and traditional Balinese folk tales. Art plays an important part in traditional ceremonies, establishing a need for spatial orientation, balancing and arranging the universe to tell a story. As tradition has informed his art, evolution helped develop it; technically with the use of Western color and perspective while connecting with the past, reflecting both his Balinese origin and his individuality. Growing up in a Balinese royal family, he studied all the traditional arts of his homeland from an early age. Gde improvises through paint his training in music, dance, and crafts bringing them together in a culmination of visual folklore onto the canvas.
