    Story Behind The Art:

     

    The artistry of Wayan Rendah has been featured in numerous periodicals, including Sunset magazine. It gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody, the artist says. Wayan Rendah's work has been featured in Home Maker's magazine. I was born in Bali on June 17, 1973. I am the oldest of seven children, in a family consisting of four brothers and three sisters. I started to learn to sculpt at the age of eight when I was still in primary school, learning from my father how to carve traditional statues from wood. Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation. At first, I sold my statues to the sellers in the art market and at small shops. After I finished school, I studied with Wayan Purna so as to have a stronger foundation to build upon, because even at a young age I knew that what I wanted was to be able to create the ideas I had in my head. But to do this I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. My ideas were unconventional at the time - developing abstract figures inspired by the form and texture of the piece of wood I had selected, combining traditional themes with modern poses and more sensual shapes.


    As time went by I was able to bring out my ideas by selecting different types of wood and concentrating on the themes that could satisfy my creative desires. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings. The mind and inspiration are two amazing things that encourage me to create special works of art. Wood has certain special characteristics that I would sacrifice if I worked with another medium like stone, which is not easily broken and produces very specific effects. I am married to a beautiful woman who helps me arrange my works to be exhibited in my small place and find new sources of inspiration. Since joining Novica, I have been able to continue to express my ideas and to support my family, and my work can be seen outside Bali. I am very grateful for this, because this is my strongest desire: to be able to create and share the ideas I have and support my family. I hope that the people who see my work enjoy it, as it gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody - for this the foundation of my work.


    Times were so hard before I joined Novica. I couldn't afford to pay the hospital for my wife giving birth to our daughter. I had to give up my motorbike, the only thing we had left, to pay the hospital and take my wife and daughter back home. God answered my prayer, and here I am now living happily with my wife, a daughter, and a son. Regular income from Novica means so much to the life of my family, and the lives of other carvers in our village.

      It is a very pretty piece to add to my collection. It truly looks like a girl. The color is perfect and I like the fact it is a little bigger then I expected. Everyone compliments me on it.

      This is so beautiful. It's simplistic enough to fit into a wide variety of decor and elegant at the same time. I bought one for me and for my mom for her birthday.

      It's really a nice carving. However, I wish I had payed closer attention to the size and visualized that better. It is too big for the purpose I intended. But I still like it.

      This statuette is extremely large. I really should have paid closer attention to the dimensions. It is pretty though.
